It’s almost been a week with my new Nikon 50mm f1.8G AF-S and I already had some keepers in such a short time. Before the photo itself, I’d just like to point out the new Fifty’s a joy to use wide open. The older version, which I used to have, is horrendously soft at f1.8. Not that I’d complain about it all the time because it made my shots dreamier than usual when I was in the mood to shoot at f1.8. The new Fifty is way sharper wide open and I can guarantee it’s a good choice for your first prime lens.
I’m cooking up a review sometime soon. Do watch out for that. In the meantime, a portrait in black and white.
Equipment used: Nikon D90 + Nikkor 50mm f1.8G AF-S + Nikon SB-900 Speedlight
