More from Dave Bar

The Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G lens is a great choice for everyday photography. Its large maximum aperture gathers lots of light so you can use faster shutter speeds to "freeze" moving subjects. It's also perfect for shooting crystal clear photos indoors — without using a flash.

Dave: Nikon's 35mm f/1.8 lens is a great choice for taking portraits and party shots, and it's especially nice for indoor shooting without a flash. It's also small enough to carry around in your coat pocket as a second lens. The bright maximum aperture lets you take good low-light shots, and it also lets you throw the background out of focus. Nice and compact, and a super sharp lens for the money.
