Hi Folks,

I'm considering another prime as a "sometimes" walk around lens for my D600 for when I want to go a little wider. I do like using my 50mm as a walk around, use my 20mm inside for parties etc but think it is too wide for a walk around.

I was going to go with a 35mm until I discovered that the Nikkor version is $1600. I've read that the Nikon 35mm 2.8 are only so-so lenses and not actually fast. That leaves the 28mm Sigma 1.8 or maybe a Sigma 24-70 2.8.

Any thoughts on a fast lens in the 28-35mm range? Maybe something I'm missing? Thanks...hobbyist use.

Thanks,
Bill
