I'm preparing to make my next lens purchase for my camera, a D90 (not before 60 days and not later than 120). I'm kind of between a couple right now and would like some outside opinion.

Really the only two (at the moment) I'm definitely considering are the addition of the 50mm f/1.8 lens or the 40mm micro f/2.8. Most of my pictures have been shot at the local airport, with a few taken of scenery and/or family pets (my nikonians album has a good representation of what I shoot).

From my limited understanding my biggest decision here is what do I want more, speed capability or ability for close up photograph. What I'm trying to decipher is if that extra full stop would make it worth it to have the 50mm vs the 40mm. By what Nikon is currently offering (I haven't looked at third parties yet) its a difference of 60 bucks new for the lenses.

The 50 and 40 I don't think will have that different capabilities from a "zoomed" in feature on the image on the image. So please share your feedback, its much appreciated. I'd be happy to add some more insight if you have questions on items I didn't directly answer.

Sorry for the long winded post...
