Experimenting with a new lens

I mentioned in an older post that the main lens I had been using was not working very well.  I was able to find a good deal at Amazon on two new lenses.  I got both of them for less than $200! Here are a few shots with one of the new lenses.  This lens is a Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8.

I'm really pleased the lens so far.  I'm looking forward to going to the botanical garden and the zoo in a few weeks to shoot some more.


  1. Loooooove the new lens! I am pining for a 50mm for my nikon!

  2. Great pics, money well spent and a good deal too!

  3. Beautiful photos! I need to buy a nice zoom for my Canon - I'm afraid to take the plunge!
