    its takes sharp pictures but they couldn't make the focus ring any bigger. my fat fingers keep getting in the way.

    here are some shitty sample pics, hopefully i will get a chance to take it out tomarrow and get some good pictures.

    I hate my 50, hardly ever use it. It's slow to focus, doesn't focus worth shit in low light, and it's so cheaply made.

    That being said I keep it in my bag because I know the second I get rid of it I'm going to get into a situation where my 28-75 2.8 is too slow, and my 85 1.8 is too long. At least it doesn't take up too much room in the bag!

    Oh yeah. I mean that $75 made me learn about apeture and DOF, worth buying a cheap 50 just for that. :rofl:

    the "nifty fifty" is the 50/1.4
    the "thrifty fifty" is the 50/1.8
