which is a better prime lens for my Nikon D3200? nikor 50mm f 1.8g or nikor 50mm f 1.8D or nikor 35 mm f 1.8G ?? nikor 50mm f 1.8 is much cheaper. Though money is a constraint for me if the other lenses are worth it and will be useful in the future then i am ready to get.

Depends on your definition of better. The 35mm is a really good lens for general photography. It is light, quite small and great in low light. It's probably the best lens Nikon make in terms of 'bang for the buck' and lots of people agree that many people with DX cameras should probably have one.

I am using Nikon D3200 and i am a beginner.nikor 50mm f 1.8D would be fine ?? Is there a vast difference between 1.8G n D(I mean a noticeable diff) ?? or you suggest a 35mm instead of 50mm ? – Deepak Raja May 23 '13 at 16:54
