I have a nikon D3200 and I'm getting a little better at my photography. I mostly take pictures of people, landscape and cars. So I thought about getting a 35mm to help me with getting a better picture. My friend suggested a 18-105mm, but I saw the sigma 18-50mm f2.8-4.5. Which one is better the sigma 18-50 or the nikon 18-105?

If you dont own a 50mm lens then you shouldn't be looking at anything else until you learn to shoot a 50mm lens. Seriously they are awesome and amazing for portraits.

Here is the cheap one i use (but the cannon equi):

Here is the 1.4 version:

Like the reccomendation above, I would do 50mm f1.4 and then upgrade to full frame next. I shot on 3 different cropped bodies with the kit lens until I went full body and thats when I spent a lot on lens. Spending money on dx format lens is a waste of money unless that's the format you'll always stay with...which it isn't for most ;)

It's always better to go with fast lenses, and with a crop sensor, you're already starting out limited as far as amount of incoming light.

So I'd go for a prime lens, or two. An f/1.8 35mm and 50mm. Both are cheap. Will allow you to get more bokeh than a zoom, allow you to get lower shutter speeds, be sharper.

They're fairly common so you could get them cheap on eBay. I have a 35mm DX I don't use that I could sell for cheap, sub $100.
