I've been dwelling over which lens to get as my first prime for a few days now. I've got a Nikon D7000 and was looking for a prime lens to do portraits with. My original thought was the 1.8D - it's affordable and seems to have some good review.
My decision became a bit more complicated with the purchase of a D5100 as my wife's Christmas present. This will be her first digital SLR - prior to that she used to have a Canon AE1 which was all manual focus. However she's gotten used to the age of auto focus so that's thrown the 1.8G into the mix.
Then I became really confused when I started reading about 1.4s - both the Nikons D and G versions and the Sigma.
Right now, I'm thinking that I can probably get away with the 1.8 and probably the G just to keep things civil with my wife. But I'd be interested to hear if autofocussing aside, if the G is better than the D as a lens and whether or not people think I should save up a bit more for a 1.4 instead of a 1.8.
Thanks in advance!
