First let me say hello. I am brand new to this forum and this is my first post. I was hoping some of you would be willing to post some of your low light pics shot with a 50mm prime hand held. Would you please indicate weather it was the 1.4 or 1.8. or other. The reason I am asking is I am considering purchasing one. I would like to find something that I can just whip out and shoot in low light conditions. I know this isnt ideal but I have to shoot on the fly. Im not even sure if this is possible but the 50 seems to be the closest thing to what I am looking for and it is priced right. The reason for the quick setup and shoot is because I chaperoned a high school trip threw Europe last summer. We where with 36 9-12 graders. Leading groups of kids obviously doesnt leave much time to set up shots. And I sure didnt have time to set up a tripod. Anyway the school is in the process of arranging another trip and I would like to take some reasonable shots of both cityscape and people with out the use of a flash at night. Is this the best choice of a lens? I am hoping some of you will be willing to post some examples. PS I have a D80 with kit 18-135mm and I'm a total beginner.
