I use my Dad's Rebel XT and have only two lenses: a crappy Sigma 28-105mm, and Canon's cheaper f/1.8 50mm prime (which I love). Given that it's all pretty basic equipment, and I'm new to photography, I think I've taken a few good shots. For example: My Tabby cat Toby: And my Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Taison: I'd really appreciate seeing some of your good shots using a "nifty fifty" and preferably a lower-end Nikon or Canon SLR. Hopefully we can get a pretty good collection going. Thanks!
