i think he is going for a faster lens.
I found a nikkor 50mm 1.8 on adomora for 99 shipped!

I would recomend both a 50 and 85mm 1.8's

I just re-read the thread, and you appear to be right. My first choice would be a 35f/1.8 AF-S, just because they are so stinkin' inexpensive. Of course, there is the whole FX/DX/film problem.

<rant on> Why, oh why, can't Nikon standardize on one or two filter sizes? In my bag now I have 52, 58, 62, 67, 72 and 77mm filters. So I have had to buy eight UV filters and six CPs, just on what's in my bag! Arrgh! <rant off>

You could always not use protective filters. But, if you feel you must, step up rings are an inexpensive solution. Then you just buy a cp for your largest lens, and use adapter rings and you can use it for all your other lenses.

When I picked up my 135DC, Pro Photo was out of the Hoya HMC that I normally like to get, so I bought a B&W. Holy schneikies, they are not giving those things away!

Yeah, a step-up ring is a solution, but not a good solution. Maybe I should just settle on one filter size, and dump all my other lenses.

Nah.
