My standard lens is an F 50 1.7.
I'm waiting for a full frame DSLR but if you are not in that market the DA 50 1.8 is good enough.
With a moving target the autofocus matters more than the extra half stop.

OK. This is GREAT advice. This is actually my favorite forum I just have so little to contribute it is embarressing.
You are right. I have some time this evening and tomorrow. I will practice with the zoom lens I have .

Also after studying myself and talking to my office mate, I think it is the 35 that will be most useful.

For Portraits you probably want a 50. I just bought an FA 35 2.0 and am just getting used to it.

I think I can get it from B+H a site sponsor.
I'd like to get it soon. If anybody knows if they intend a black friday sale let me know.
I think that is stupid though (not B+H this idea of the black friday)
