There's always the 35mm 2.0, 85mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4, 28mm 2.8

Sorry, POTN has taught me to speak in primes.

I'd say any of the fast primes would be good. Keep the aperture as wide as you can hold it without blur.

The 35 f/2 is a great lens for the price. Good luck!

With my experience though, I like to shoot at f/11 on a tripod. (If I can find one) Because if you're shooting streetlights, with a low aperature, some of them will turn out soft, which is a real let down.

Though fast primes are great for night photography!
