I could not find a better place to post this, but a prom has people dressed up like weddings and the light is more subdued like one might expect at a post wedding dance.

I have shot in the past with a flash and 28-105/3.5-4.5 or 28-70/2.8 with my D200.

Now I have a D800 and would like to see what I can do with just natural light. As a result, I would prefer fast lenses. I am thinking one of the following:

50/1.4
35/1.4
85/1.4

I kind of think the 50 and 85 would be the best options or maybe just stick to my 28-70/2.8.

Any thoughts?

Shoot nature with respect and don't trample it or startle its inhabitants. :)
