Thread: Are 50mm lenses...

    most popular because:
    1. Cheapest u can find in Nikon or Canon
    2. Prime lens...so quality is among the best! It is hard to produce a louzy 50mm prime. Sharp!
    3. Fast. No zoom is this fast...and is suitable to keep as backup for low light photography.
    4. "Normal" viewing angle. 50mm is suitable as a general all purpose lens.

    Default 50mm lens are boding.

    I own a 50/1.8. I agree its a very sharp and great lens but it is frankly v.boring. I mostly shoot wider or go for abt 100-150mm. 50mm is neither here nor there so I dun use it often.

    I tend to agree with kraterz. I would actually prefer a wider angle prime, albeit more expensive.

    Using 50mm in digital body eg D70 with 1.5x factor.
    Does it mean when used in D70 , it will be equivalent as 75mm in film body ?

    Not a bad idea.... hone your composition skills with the limits imposed by the 50mm....

    50mm f/1.8 vs 35mm f/2 for DSLR with 1.6x crop usage. What do you think?

    Don't you think this lens would be a better choice if you were to choose just 1 prime lens to walk around with?
