Buying myself another camera this month has not worked out, mostly thanks to the unexpected extra costs of textbooks. So I’m considering a new option.

In the meantime, I’m going to clean up the D50's sensor and buy a prime lens to play with. Looking at a 35mm F/1.8 DX Nikon lens that comes as a highly recommended starting point from many websites. I’m also looking for options from Tamron and Sigma, or for a 50mm instead of 35mm.

So first question is, where do you fine folks find used lenses, and gear in general? I’m keeping an eye on my local Craigslist and the used stock on B&H.

Second is, what lenses do you recommend I look at instead of the aforementioned Nikon?
