New Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 for Christmas

As my endeavours into the DSLR world continues to grow, my first push into having multiple lenses for my Nikon D90 grew over Christmas when Rebecca got me a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8d. It’s certainly an adjustment to have this in my arsenal, and I’m doing my best to get a good feel for it, even if it means being annoying to anyone within a shutter click.

  1. It’s a great lens for a multitude of reasons. I think it’s the lens that’s caused the most grown in my ability to compose a shot. Since you can’t zoom, you’re forced to think about what it is you are framing, and how to move your feet to get the best shot. Plus the fast speed of the lens lets you have awesome control over the depth of field.

  2. I wish I knew enough about photography to make a coherent and articulate comment, but since I don’t, all that is left for me to say is – I love your photography, look forward to seeing you and Rebecca soon, and Merry belated Christmas and Happy New Year!

  3. What an excellent Christmas present. What Duane said is true. It’s a great lens. The fact it’s a prime makes you think more about composition and framing.
