These lenses give you better and creamy bokeh. The battle between 35mm and 50mm f 1.8 is on.Are you confused on what prime lens to buy. 50mm- better bokeh and faster focus, I prefer this on portraits and closer subject. 35mm – if youre on a tight space i prefer this more than the later. It gives bokeh too but not so creamy like 50mm. It can also be an all around lens.
