I've been so excited about having an iPhone at last (the one I used to use was Iain's and so I only got to use it occasionally) that I almost forgot about my other new toy - my 50 mm lens.
I've only ever used a zoom lens on the Canon before, so using a prime is taking a bit of getting used to. I keep going to twiddle the lens when what I really need to do is step forwards or backwards.
I went for the f/1.8 50 mm because it was recommended by a couple of photographers on TWIT TV as being a really good quality lens for the money (around $200 NZ).
I thought I'd put my new lens to the test in low light conditions (indoors, daylight, handheld). With the lens open wide I was getting crisp handheld shots at ISO 200, whereas before I couldn't do handheld indoors at all, even when I cranked the ISO up to 1600. I'm really glad I bought it!
