    EF 50mm f/1.8 II Best Shot



    I thought since pretty much everyone owns or has owned this very small, very cheap, and yet surprisingly fun lens thatit would be fun to see some of the work it has produced.

    I like them both, I wouldn't expect such a good quality from this lens - can you post larger versions for our review?

    those are both very good.. good enough that now i'm considering getting one of these just for the hell of it.. but then again, i have the f/1.4 so there probably isn't a point other than novelty.


    do you have any others? do share!

    <div>Yeah, this lens is very cheap. I sometimes get the feeling that it is going to break when it's trying to focus and I have read reports that the autofocus will burn out on it with excessive use...but for the price ($90) it'sprobably the bestbargain Canon offers. </div>
    <div></div>
    <div>I've heard the f/1.4 is much better (certainly for build quality, if not for <span style="cursor: hand; border-bottom: #0066cc 1px dashed;" id="lw_1234784181_0" class="yshortcuts"]image quality) so if you already have that I don't see any reason why you would get this lens. I just know a lot of people get it, especially beginners, because of the price, so I wanted to see what was out there. </div>
    <div></div>
    <div>I'll post a couple more when I get the chance.</div>

    Atticus, here are two more. I have added a few more on my profile if you would like to see them...there's just no way to post the EXIF data on there. If you would like to know it for any of them...just let me know.

    This isn't my best shot but it is one I had handy at work. Taken in Leu Gardens in Orlando just before Christmas. Shot with a 30D, 50mm 1.8 II, Av 2.8, Tv 1/800, Evaluative metering, ISO 100, processed in DPP, and basically just resized for the web. I was intentionally playing with narrow DOF that day, but I learned alot []

    OK, here is a newbie posting question. This picture is supposed to be 800x1200, but it is obviously smaller. Is this something Flicker is doing to my photos? I just have a basic free account, so I think this is the problem.


    Assuming this is the problem, are there any other services that won't change my pictures, and do it for free? Or are there some settings in Flicker that I need to change?
