After carefully considering my lens options for standard lens, I have decided to change from the originally selected Nikon AF 50mm lens, and have instead selected the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens. I was originally going to obtain the 50mm, which is somewhat above the normal range for the purpose. The 35mm lens is a newly released lens and is not even in stock at Amazon.com yet, but I have already placed my order, awaiting the arrival of their stock. The advantage of the new lens (which is about $60 more than the original selection) is that it is AF-S, so it will focus itself using the “silent wave motor”. Being at “normal” (50mm) will give me a neutral field of view angle, so nothing will appear distorted from the compression of a zoom, or the slight curving of a wide, but will just be natural. The aperture of this lens is the same as the previous candidate, so I will have the same amount of light entering, but with a sharper focus due to there being an electronic focus mechanism in place.
