the nifty fifty

You don’t have to call this lens by it’s proper name, just call it the ‘nifty fifty’ and

everyone knows what you’re talking about.  You don’t?  It’s Canon’s 50mm 1.8 lens and

oh do I love it so!  I do have my sights set on the 50mm 1.4, but if you’re in the market

for a lens that’s sharp and won’t break the bank, the 50mm 1.8 is it.

Here’s a few inspiring images using this lens from Flickr:
