I ordered the Nikon 50mm f/1.8D lens on the recommendation of a few folks last week, and it arrived at the office today. Naturally, I couldn’t wait to try it out.
The one thing I was really excited about was how well people told me this lens works with available light when you can’t, or don’t want to, use a flash. So I took it for a spin around the house this evening and I have to say I am impressed. I got some nice quality, without having to resort to using the flash, which definitely made for a warmer photo, and nicer skin tones.
I’ve got a few more in my 50mm lens test set on Flickr. Can’t wait to get some more time this weekend and see what else I can do with this lens, I hear it’s great for playing with depth of field, and taking photos of lights at night, we’ll see!
