So many of us have these beautiful lenses now, I know I was largely influenced by the brilliant photographs I've seen here. some of you should get a commission from the camera shops I reckon.

anyway how about us newbies posting some of our pics here in one thread.

These were all taken the day I got it. Oh yeah, I haven't even shot in RAW as yet, suppose I should start someday, for some reason I am a bit intimidated, I dont know what to expect.

Wow, great photos!!!!

I have been learning to use my OH's camera for the past week. Before that I had never taken it off 'auto'!!!!!!! I made it my holiday goal to learn how to use the camera properly!

Anyway, I just so happened to whip out his 50mm lens this morning... Of course my subjects are always the dogs!

Awesome shots! I especially like the first. Love yours too, Terra.

I've been feeling completely uninspired lately, everything I take seems really boring or simply bad. There's so much to learn too, it's really overwhelming!

Oh Terranik they're lovely. I really like the first one. Mine are almost always dogs too, that's why I posted the flower shots, cause I've posted nearly all the dog ones here already!

I took this about 2 hours ago :thumbsup: I had it at about f5 ISO 200 and shutter of 1200(ish) the focal point is a bit off but i just love the timing of this one.

here is s couple of my fave shots with this lens. I was at a friends house and the light through the window onto her white mantle was fantastic.

Oh and we had just come back from the flower markets.... Via a shoe shop... of course......

its cool for action cause its fast, sharp and its AF is really fast too. be greater if it was a zoom tho :thumbsup:

wow, what a versatile lens! love the action shot but the arty ones are just a good and Ruthless yes post them, I just hoped everyone would post all the different pics this lens can take. I think those ones of yours are the kind that influenced me to buy this lens.

see here my Puck, I think even had yours in mind when I took this.

Yep, same here.

I think when I was pricing them HN offered it for $134?? I might have written it in a post. I will check for you.

found it, $136 was the best. maybe you can use that as a bargaining point. good luck

Here's some more of my crazy boy Puck and his bro Tag

It was all happening pretty fast so not the best focus, but they show his fun personality.
