Hi All, was sincerely thinking of getting this 50 mm/f 1.4 or 1.8 (i want very shallow DOF when i photograph my would be wife)
Where do i get this lens for $100 or $130 ? Canon site shows as 800 SGD!!!
M very new to the photography arena.. got the EOS 400D with the 18-55 mm kit lens.
Can someone pls advise (I guess m pretty late in posting to this thread)..
Thanks in Adv
the $100 / $130 was mentioned in the same thread.. so bit confused
it is the 50mm 1.8 MKII that is around $120
the one you were looking at should be the 50mm 1.4
go to the lens price list to find the shops selling them. most of the shops should be around that price.

Not enough Depth of field leh.
In order to get enough DOF which covers the nearest and furthest person, you probably need to use F/8 or smaller and focus at the point which is about 1/3 of the distance between the nearest person and the furthest person.
But then, F/8 is 3.7 stops slower than F/2.2. So you may have problem with handshake blur because the shutter speed would be about 1/9 even if you pump up your ISO to 1600.
In this kind of shots, it's better to use a wide angle lens with a very short focal length instead. Alternatively, use flash and a small aperture.

the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM does have FTM even though its only a Micromotor USM and not Ring USM.
you may want to use the depth of field preview button to get an idea of how much to stop down. with lower-end DSLRs like 350D where the viewfinder is small it may be harder to see the effect of DOF preview though.

Somewhere i read from and was also told that the f/1.4 does not have FTM, but oh well....i might be wrong though.
