    But seriously, the f1.8 can take decent low light pics, example of the pics I spoon fed my friend (on settings) and she shot the below last weekend, using the Canon f1.8 II

    Hi. Treat the 50mm lens as just but another focal length. People shooting, buildings, landscapes,or even macro with appropriate filters/setup. Do not let a focal length conform ideas.

    you use 50mm lens to shot anything that show up in your viewfinder, as long you find it gives you the effects you want.

    a lens has maximum aperture of fX.X, does not mean you can only shoot maximum aperture, you select a aperture value to give you the right effects for the photos.



    and one more thing,

    you need adequate light to give you a decent exposure, but does not mean that is a good lighting.

    we photographers are looking at the quality of light, not just simply quantity of light.
