I got the 50mm f/1.8 lens today and I played around pretty much all afternoon. These pictures are slightly edited (auto levels on photoshop elements, lightened some, and sharpened when needed) but no fancy work was done. I love the crispness of this lens.

Somethings that I'm trying to get used to is backing up to get everything in the picture. I'm SO new to photography and really never knew what to expect. I didn't realize that this lens was going to feel like my telephoto, but without the zoom. It's awesome though because it's making me think more about the shot before just snapping away. I stopped using the zoom on my other lenses anyway, but I guess I'd occasionally use them randomly... this prime lens has no zoom, and because of that, you get much crisper, cleaner looking photos.

Anyway, if anyone who uses this lens has any tips, please let me know! I want to LEARN.
