I've really enjoyed it.

    Can totally see your point, but I paid &pound;60 for mine, for that I have no complaints!

    Here's my contribution to the Nifty Fifty gallery []
    50mm f/1.8 II, ISO 100, f/8, 10-second exposure. Camera was placed on a tripod. Mirror lockup enabled. Shot in RAW, and processed in PS.

    Not my best shot, but I find it interesting.

    Here's another. Definitely not a to testament to the abilities of the plastic fantastic, but something to drool over. A friend playing with my gear.

    The Nifty-Fifty and the 85 f1.8 are the two lenses I use the most. Absolutely love them.


    Here's a couple of mine.

    Seems we have a great many talented people here. Goes to show what a sense of light and an eye for composition can create with an inexpensive lens.


    I am glad that Canon produces this lens.

    Great shots Garret!! I'm interested in the EXIF data for the hands and the portrait shot if you don't mind. Some shots with my 50 1.8 from a portrait session on Tuesday leave quite a bit to be desired in the realms of sharpness. (shooting at f/4.5 or smaller).


    Thanks!
