Early bday present – a new lens! 35mm nikkor prime lens, and I love it thus far. I can definitely tell there is a difference in quality in the bokeh and even the lens flare turns out to be more of a rainbow than a series of circles and hexagons. What I really like about it is that it is much lighter and smaller than the 18-55mm standard zoom lens that I used, making the camera not as heavy. I really like it and know that I’ll use it probably the most always.
