    but i don't really use it often at all, I always have something wider on my camera. Every time I just throw it on to mess around with though I love it, the DOF at 1.8 is pretty crazy. I really need to get some people to let me do some portraits of them or something!

    canon or nikon? nikon makes a 35 1.8 for $200 that i bought. since getting it my 50 collects dust. 35 is a much nicer perspective on my crop d90 and i think it's a sharper lens.

    does chicago have any museums like a wax museum? i love taking a prime in to a museum and shooting portrait shots of stuff at 1.8 or 2.8. so fun

    nice. i found it tough to use. indoors is tough cuz you always need to back way up and sometimes can't.

    Woot 50mm crew. Mine is a 1.4 though. In an effort to continue to move this thread along, I set the cam up last night and told my friend to snap a pic of me since there are barely any and I wanted more. I did crop a bit. But the 50mm is such an awesome lens.

    I bet I would enjoy it more on a non-crop body...
