Any tips guys?
set to f/2. shoot. enjoy.
- Stop it down, f/2 is better than 1.8 and mine gets dramatically sharper past ~f/2.8.
- Steer clear of shooting into red highlights (in particular) - bish flares like mad on red.
- Make sure its set to manual focus if you're in an environment where quiet matters
Thanks, anything else? Lol!
Do you have any photos? Preferably portraits?
it takes a while to focus in low light
Sell it and get the f1.4
take more self portraits
Ah that explains the blury look in my shots.
LOL, too expensive for me
Enough of those too boring.. Meh!
how long till you flip it around?
Lol, unlikely that I will, sorry!
I leave my camera in continuous focus mode for shots at f/2 and wider.
Seems to help.
I do that too, this is my first additional lens by the way, so i'm quite happy
awesome! enjoy... I'd like to get the 1.4 one of these days..
this is a great portrait lens..
I hope to get that some day, for now i'm going to enjoy shooting with this
wide open, shallow DOF
Only thing to think about is the sharpness below 2.8... you gain the shallow DOF below 2.8, but you lose sharpness...
The bokeh at 1.8 is sweet though
The bokeh on this lens is actually pretty harsh. Fun lens for $75 though
I do but not handy at work. Here's one that is already up for a friend of mine, took ages ago, wide open, and ISO 1600 on the D30
Aside from the noise and general mediocrity of the subject its a fair example of what the 50 can do wide open at least. Short DOF candids are generally FTW with this lens.
flip it around and shoot. lol
That's pretty coolany without the high ISO?
Gotta love that
Why so grainy for?
you'll soon be addicted to primes
he shot it at ISO 1600, hence, the noise
I always keep my iso very very low!
