Default Nikon D7100 fixed lens

hello! i am looking to buy a fixed lens with a low f stop (1.2 or 1.4. or similar) for my D7100 as it only comes with a Nikkor 18-105mm 1:3.5-5.6. i need more light sensitivity in darker conditions and will use it for portraits and close ups mainly. any suggestions or thoughts on this are much appreciated! thanks, bea

There are a number of lenses that will work with your D7100 like you describe:

And those are just the ones from Nikon.

BTW, these aren't designed specifically for close-ups, but some of them can manage it. If you want macro (or as Nikon calls it, "micro"), that is, a 1:2 magnification ratio or better, that's something else.

Also, there is the Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR Nice sharp results. And a decent macro.

Also check out Sigma lenses. They are as good as but cheaper than Nikon. All my lenses are Sigma.
