They are almost the same, the 50mm obviously provides more telephoto than the 35mm and this 35mm will provide auto focus with the D5100. I have the 35mm and I find it appropriate for indoor photography (the reason I bought it). The 50mm is not appropriate for indoors unless it's a big hall.
My wench is into photography and she wanted the 50mm lens for aperture shots or something. She uses a nikon 5100 and I bought her the Nikkor 50mm AF lens which she asked for for xmas. I know this means she'll have to manually focus it which she doesn't mind because she'll upgrade eventually.

Would this lens be a better option for her current camera and do pretty much the same or better? Or is this lens worth having as well as the one I've already bought?

I don't know anything and would rather surprise her with something rather than ask her again about it so any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks
Great lens.
A word of warning to folks, I held off buying this last year as at one point with cashback it was really cheap (early November IIRC). It never went lower and got more expensive, so I ended up paying more for it. It's a cracking lens though, really great for low light and fast moving subjects as it's so quick !
Great portraite lens, and weather sealed, unlike the D versions found cheap on ebay... good price, tho they went silly cheap to £100 about 6 months ago, the lens is worth twice that imo

Thank you all for your comments and sound advice. It's been very helpful and I'm loving my 35mm. So as suggested, I'll see what I end up using the camera the most for and go from there.

....and as for the 85mm being a 'niche' lens, I'm not quite sure what that niche is supposed to be {/snip} perhaps when you know what you want it for.....

There ya go ;)

Thank you for the advice. I am trying to determine if it a worthy purchase. If I have 35mm Prime and so thought 85mm would be a good addition. Would you suggest that a 50mm is better then?
Whether it's a good purchase depends upon what you intend to photograph - I'd initially advise just using your 35mm for a while until you've got a better understanding of what you can and can't do with it and only then looking for another lens - if for example, you find yourself taking a lot of landscape pictures, you may actually want something with a wider field of view than your existing lens - on the other hand, if you're taking a lot of portraits or are constantly frustrated that you can't get 'close enough' to your subject, then the 85mm (or longer) may be best....you could also consider a zoom though you'll compromise on having a smaller maximum aperture (and some will tell you that image quality is not as good, though that discussion is a whole new can of worms...)
Personally, I'd suggest that the 50mm is a little too close to your existing lens to be a sensible 2nd lens, though it may be something to think about in the future....and as for the 85mm being a 'niche' lens, I'm not quite sure what that niche is supposed to be - it's a useful short telephoto with a decent aperture that's also pretty compact and nice and light - a good lens to have in your arsenal, but perhaps when you know what you want it for.....

I appreciate the advice as I only recently bought the d5100 and I new to Nikon.

Depends on what other lenses you have and what you want to shoot.

Compared to Jessops,Tesco Direct,Currys etc, this is a huge saving having just dropped to it's lowest price. This is the 'G' Silent Wave Motor lens. Purchased the 50mm yesterday after being reduced.

Need some advice please.....
I have a D3000 and am no pro but like to take some nice pictures, have got baby on the way too so will be taking loads more pictures of newborn. Would this be an ideal indoor/portrait lens or would a 50mm be better? I had also been looking at the Canon 600d deal (with its Live screen and HD videoing) as I would like to upgrade but is it worth upgrading camera or keep the Nikon and get better lenses? Cheers

on a DX the 50mm is a bit too long for indoor use, I have both, I love the 50mm, sharpest lens I've ever used, but alot of my work is indoors and the 35mm is alot easier to work with.
you know what's ironic, I just came to use this lens and the bloody autofocus motor has stopped working! gah
think this deal might be over now :(
this lens is awesome and was the first lens i bought for my d3100, it has an effective focal length of 50mm and so on the cropped sensors that these af-s lenses are for can be considered as standard focal length. Its really crisp and well worth the money, the 50mm af-s lens is also good from what i hear and it is of course down to personal preference or budget (get them both)
£140 now?

Good price so heat added. The lens is brilliant!

On a side note: Lightroom is not Photoshop so if you are expecting it to do the same things then you'll be disappointed.

What is it for? i have the Nikon 3100. Pardon my ignorance
It's a great lens for portraiture shots (too narrow really for landscapes etc). With the f1.8 you get great depth of field which makes for great images. Sharp head with fluffy, blurred background - really brings out the subject.
Even at night time this lens will give you spectacular bokeh's (circular out of focus blobs behind the subject - usually lights etc.)
I have the 50mm 1.4 (had the 1.8 and got greedy) I still say these 1.8 prime lenses are worth every penny.
Buy it, you WILL NOT be dissappointed!!
Excellent lens - even for the £180 I paid last year. I rarely use anything else on my D5100.

For people who are just getting into photography, the real joy of a fixed lens is that it will encourage you to move to frame your shot - no zoom.

Good find and a great lens. If you haven't already got a fast prime for your DX camera buy this!
It's not a kit lens! Is a great prime, like the op I had a fifty first and found it too long on a dx camera so changed for one of these. Good lens all round really.
Great price for a fast standard prime lens.
Really nice price for a great lens! have some HEAT!

Want this as a cheap replacement for my 50mm 1.4 as its a bit too zoomed in. This looks like its the cheapest its ever been on Amazon and if its anything like the 50mm then I'll be very pleased.

I'm going to give them a try, i phoned them and they appear to be above board, there are positive reviews on them.. Paid by cc just in case but cheapest price online and in stock..
After the earthquakes in Japan these were extremely rare, good to see they're finally returning to their intended price. Amazing little day lens that I seem to use all the bloody time. Use around f2-2.8 to get that perfect pin sharp picture.
