    And it is nifty. I got my 50mm f1.8 today and so far I love it. Here are 2 of my favorite shots I took with it today. Any comments or critique are welcome and appreciated :)

    excellent pictures! the 50mm f/1.8 is my preferred lens of choice for quick "grab and go" as i like to call em' pictures.

    Interesting depth of field on the apple picture, but what really grabs my attention are the warm colors. the composition is beautiful as well.

    What a handsome man! you've clearly mastered the number one rule of portrait photography, show the subject through their eyes. Great composition, crisp, clear shot.

    great to see you're enjoying your 50 :D

    Speaking of 1st picture. Where were you focusing on?
    NF should be amongst SHARPEST lenses out there and yet apples seem soft. Like the dof in second image. :thumbup:

    The soft focusing was a mistake on my part, but after I uploaded the picture to the computer I liked it. I think it has an almost painterly feel. Thanks for the feedback!
