I LOVE my 50mm lens!!!! I love the sharpness I get from it and that the background is very nicely blurred so you can focus on the main subject! and i Love how much light it lets in.

This is by far my fave photo (so far) from it.



but these come in a close second...
I love how you can see his wrinkled skin heehee and I have NEVER gotten this clear of pics of underwater animals before!


and here Zander looks like he is just gonna jump off the page... LOVE the details!



and this is my favorite pic from my Sigma 18-200mm lens (I love the range but wish low light pics turned out better)

I LOVE my sigma 70-300. I have an 18-55 kit lense (not so great) that I don't use much. I don't have anymore lenses yet, but next on my list is either a 50mm or an 18-200.
I'd post pics, but I don't know how on here quite yet ;o) My avatar pic was taken with my 70-300.

There's a box that looks like a polaroid photo. Copy a picture's URL from wherever you have things online and then click on the polaroid. It will ask you for the URL, paste it in and say OK. IT will put it into your post!

I like my 50 for portraits, but at times a zoom makes a HUGE difference. so it depends on where and what I am shooting. I think I use my 50 and 75-300 most often. (i've heard the 85 1.8 is amazing too)

I have heard that too about the 85! I would love to buy it but I need to buy a better flash first LOL

favorite lens

Post  horsegirl on Tue Jun 10, 2008 1:19 am

My lens of choice is the 50mm prime, but I have to admit that's the only decent lens I have right now! I'm stalking the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 on Ebay right now in hopes of getting a good (and relatively inexpensive) low-light zoom lens. Here are some photos taken with a Canon Digital Rebel and the 50mm prime lens (I resized the first few pics a bit small, but hopefully you can get a feel for the sharpness and bocha of the lens):





Ok, the last pic of my daughter trailriding is nothing earth shattering, but I couldn't resist slipping a horse pic in! Wink
