Fun With My 50mm

Money well spent! I've been using this beautiful piece of glass for a month now and so far it hasn't fail me. The sharpness and bokeh are superb. Even under poor lighting conditions, I could go flash-less with this thing and still capture magnificent quality shots. This should keep me busy while waiting for an external flash, which is exactly the next thing I'm gonna get after this. (Note to self: get the bloody damn SB-800 already!)

This lens is absolutely perfect for portrait photography and I'm still trying to get the hang of it. With the biggest aperture at f/1.8, this also happens to be a 'fast' lens, meaning that with faster shutter speed I'm able to freeze time and still keep images as sharp as it can be, unlike my 18-135mm kit lens. I'm so in love with fixed lenses right now.

Here are some random shots (mostly first attempts) taken with my Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8.
