    Hi again
    I have received my new 50mm f1.8 lens yesterday and I managed to take some shoots today. Because I have nikon D40 it is all manual focus.
    I'm really impressed about this lens. It is so sharp that I can't believe I paid only £60 for it (brand new from China).
    This is my beautifull wife.
    I Used built in flash because I don't have SB600 yet :) (flash compensation set to -1.0).
    Please C&C

    With that lens, you should be able to crank the ISO up to 800 and use natural lighting.

    Nice shot for using built-in flash, too... I can only barely tell that you used it.

    Congrats on the lens. I just got mine about a week ago. It's such a cool little thing.

    Apples and oranges.

    I'll echo the kudos on using the flash - very well done and was the first thing I though.

    Hi
    Thanks for all comments
    I don't really want to setup ISO to more than 400 because of sensor noise. I'm quite happy about result with built in flash but my next purchase will be SB-600 :)
    Thanks again

    Tom
