Two choices.

Nikon 35mm 1.4 AFS

or

Nikon 24mm 1.4 AFS and 50mm 1.8 AFS.

I'm looking for something light that I can also have fun with. I love landscape (always have) but want something for travel and street photography.

I am shooting on FX.

It totally depends on the focal lengths you prefer. I've really come to like the 35-40mm range when I'm not sure what I'm going to be shooting. All of these lenses are great, so I'd base it on how you like to shoot.

i'm shifting back to primes. i rekon i'd get a 35/1.4 before a 24/1.4. mind you, i have plenty of 24mm options anyways.

Im still a little confused about your budget restrictions here...

How come you can afford the 24mm and another lens, when the 24mm alone is already more expensive than the 35mm?

If I were you I think the 35/85 combo offers more flexibility :wink:
