I have been debating buying a new lens for my Nikon DSLR ever since I got it last year. The standard lens is just fine, and was a great companion all throughout Europe, but a great 1.8 lens is a must. And now I have finally caved (or rather, am able to afford it!). I am now patiently waiting for my 35mm 1.8 package in the mail. These 5-8 standard business days can not go fast enough!
