The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/18G fixed-focal-length "prime" lens works well in low light, is able to shoot sharp pictures with a shallow depth of field, and has a built-in autofocus motor, allowing it to work with Nikon's lower-end DSLRs. At under $200, it's a bargain, especially compared to similar lenses in its class. If you have a Nikon DSLR and you're ready to step up from the kit lens bundled with your camera, this should be one of the first lenses on your shopping list.
