    I got my Canon 50mm f/1.8 II in the mail yesterday and so I decided to take some pictures of my son playing with his blocks this morning. I have to say, the glass in this lens is GREAT! My only complaint is with the autofocus being noisy and quite slow but then again the lens only cost me $70 so I guess I can't complain too much. All of these were shot in aperature priority mode with the lens stopped at 1.8. Let me know what you think:mrgreen:

    These are all quite excellent but #s 1,2 & 4 would look better if they were cropped to 4 x 5 rather than 4 x 6.

    There is nothing sacred about the 3:2 aspect ratio.

    Thanks. I'll have to try cropping them and see how they look.

    I am completely biased against 4x6 in a portrait mode. People just don't fill that frame well.

    Your kid has Thom Yorke hair, awesome. I like the first and second a lot, reminds me I need to get some lenses with low F numbers...
