    Okay, I ordered my Nikon 50mm 1.4 AF-s today! :smileys:

    Please tell me it's going to be worth the almost $500 I spent for it!?!?! I do alot of indoor portrait shots......

    It will be worth it. I have the older 50mm f/1.4 and the 85mm f/1.8 and they're my favorite lenses. They're great for selective focusing.

    Oh no!

    Please say you didn't... I'm sorry to hear you went ahead and ordered it. But, just to be a good forum helper I'll offer to take it off your hands for you, at no charge of course, so you don't have to go through the agony of using such an inferior piece of equipement.

    :lol:

    Great pick, enjoy!

    I'm a Canon user, but I just recently (2 days ago) finally fell head over heels in love with my Canon 50mm 1.8....Its taken a couple weeks to get used to it, its a tricky lens! But once you get the hang of it, it does amazing work. The kind of DOF I have been getting with it is amazing. I'm still learning, but what I love the most about it, is it's like your personality of how you shoot photos comes out when you use this lens. I don't own very many, but I really feel like my style shines thru a little bit when I use this lens. Great Buy! Can't wait to see some pics you take with it! I'm posting a couple I did the other day at a Corporate Event I photographed =)

    WOW! I'm even more excited now! When I got my camera 7 months ago I never thought I'd be buying a lens that cost more than it did! heehee. I can't wait! I hope it has decent Bokeh....I read it was just okay.
