    cool shots. i have nothing to offer here C&C wise as im just not knowledgable enough. something about the focal point of number 3 is getting me though... could perhaps be my crappy monitor.

    i got a 50mm 1.8 on the way! cant wait to play.

    You will love it! It makes me wonder how I got by with the stock lens for a year.

    Yeah well I only have a d60 so its not much higher then yours so a lot is possible. The DOF with this lens is amazing as you are already most likely aware from research :p

    yea man! the 1.4 was out of my price range, so the 1.8 seemed like a good compromise! i broke my 18-55 so i ordered another for cheap last night. got a 55-200 for xmas. cant wait to get shooting! goodluck

    Cool...I really like #1! except for the snow looking blown out...but not much anyone could do about that. I think the 1.8 will be my next purchase if I don't get a an SB600 first. So to post pictures from Flickr, do you just copy the entire URL and post it here? I haven't seen [​IMG]

    This and other threads i've searched on this lens have made up my mind, i'm gettin it.
    I got the 20mmf2.8 last year and love that,just wanted another prime with more focal length, this is the one. Love the second piano shot BTW.

    #1 - being that its a heavyset subject, filling the frame and composing the way you did - you really did add 10-20lbz
    #2 - I like BW, its classic. Good job capturing your subject and keep him, THE WHOLE HIM, in focus :)
    #3 - its a wasted frame for me
    #4 - I LiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiKe :D
