    I like it kinda. Looks a little busy, and I wish the leave tips were more in-focus. I'm starting to think that I need a new lens, the cheapo 18-55 just isn't workign anymore! :lol: Thoughts?

    Heh, thanks! I'm finding that the lens is taking longer and longer to focus, that took at least a minute to get it right. I really want to get a 50mm prime as my next lens. :)

    It might've taken longer to focus because it looks like you are fairly close (maybe right on the minimum focusing distance that lens has). It'll also taken longer to focus in lower light. The 18-55 lens is a great little lens to have but a nice fast prime is always a welcome addition.

    You definitely found the lowest dof.

    That could be, but it's even starting to do that in landscapes. :( Either way I want a nice sharp lens. :)
    Yep, f4.0 to be exact! :lol:

    If you wish the leaves were more in focus, maybe you should choose something other than f/4.

    You don't need a new lens; You need to learn to work this lens first, and then it will in turn work for you.

    I agree. You haven't pushed the boundaries of what the lens can produce optically simply by saying it takes a bit too long to autofocus.

    Then just say that, instead of stuff like, "the cheapo 18-55 just isn't workign anymore!" That's the kind of stuff that makes noobs think those lenses aren't any good.

    Aww, now I feel bad. :(

    Just kidding, I see what you mean. :) I should have phrased as 'I would like to replace this 18-55 mm with a 50mm prime, because I would like too"? :lol:

    You can phrase it however you like, but it's silly to blame your equipment when it can clearly do better if you'd just learn how to use it, and then to basically say you need to replace it because it sucks, when in fact, it's operator error.

    Just sayin'...
