comment Which lens to buy: 50mm f/1.8G or 10-20mm as first extra lens for travel to Japan?
After a while, I ended up buying the Nikon 35mm 1:1.8G. I started using it and, so far, I really like it! Thanks for the suggestions...next steps will be a decent filter and a "portable" tripod :-)

Thanks John for your suggestions. About the tripo I have seen it has been ordered by Adorama (much cheaper than Amazon.com -> 159$), but they cannot estimate when will it be available. I will try to look to another shop, since I would like to have it before the end of march. If you can give me some further suggestions about polarizer filters it would be great. I have seen their effect and I like it very much, but again are they worth while or is it more the "beginner entushiasm"?!

comment In which situations should I use my circular polarizing filter?
+1 very good Answer! Which polarizer filter would you suggest for a Nikon 18-55mm lens? I have seen there are many, but I do not know which could be considered an "all-around" filter fitting the most situations.

Thanks Johan for the info. Since you tried both lenses which are the meain differences between the two and which camera body do you use?

Actually that friend of mine (photographer) suggested the same thing, saying that, as beginner, the 18-55mm lens would be already fine to be used as wide angle. The idea of taking a new lens (and in the specific a 50mm one) was due to the wish of getting new possibilities/results, mainly in low light conditions. I am still looking to find a good and "portable" tripod that would assist me in night photos.

+1 for the cool suggestions. Thanks a lot. About the tripod I was lookign for a Guerrilla tripod since it seems quite flexible and easy to carry around. However at the shop they told me that it is to "light" for a camera like D5100. I still found quite hard to make nice photos in low light since they are almost always out of focus (most probably also due to my inexperience with proper shutter speed). I think I will take the 50mm for Portraits and "street details" (also due to my current budjet).About polarizing filter, I read that the 50mm 1.8G needs a 58mm instead of the 52mm, is that right?

Sorry, it was a typo error (now fixed). I would like to make some practice with the new lens before leaving to Japan :-)

I am looking at the 50mm for its capabilities in low light. Photo details would also be very interesting since in Japan there will be thousands of small funny things to capture. I was a bit worried about different posts about focus difficulties with this lens thought. On the other side I have seen it is possible to take "normal" scenes and not only short distance portraits with with a 50mm, but not having any experience with this model I do not know.
