"RE: 50mm lens with a d3000"

Hi Jeremy,

On you D3000, a 35mm lens has the same Field of View (FOV) as a 50mm lens has on a film of FX body. Back in the 1970's and 1980's most cameras came with a 50mm lens as zooms were uncommon and expensive at the time.
The 35mm lens is considered a normal lens on a DX body.
To see for yourself, set the zoom ring on your kit lens to 35mm and keep it there for a while and shoot.
Then set it to 50mm and keep it there for a while and shoot.
Which focal length works better for you?
The 50mm f/1.4 is 2/3rds of a stop faster than the 35mm f/1.8.

Best Regards,
Marty
