All you newbies on the fence, wondering what to get... well this lens has been recommended here more then one time..(thats why I bought it) and its outstanding.. and its under $90.00 at B & H Photo. 50mm F1.8 Don`t hesitate, its outstanding. Its fast, crisp and clear. Great for all shots, plus close ups, or night shots, and its small. AUTO FOCUS TOO. These pictures are sharp and so in focus I`m so impressed. Thanks everyone for telling me about this lens. I just want to pass on this info for all the new people after me. This is a little power house and worth more then what I spent.
