One Really Fine Lens

Not long ago, I bought a very inexpensive lens for my camera kit.  As you know, I shoot Nikon equipment and have done so since 1973.  I bought the 50 mm f/1.8 lens for only $109.00, what a steal for such a fine lens.


I just love the shallow DOF this lens provides when shot wide open.  These two shot where shot for the annual report referenced on an earlier post

I might as well add an additional shot using this lens.  Just look at the bokeh that this lens produces.  Bokeh is the term referring to the appearance to out-of-focus (ness,ness) of the areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field (DOF).

The lighting on the above photo was direct sunlight passing through a 42 inch diffusion 5 in 1 flexfil collapsible reflector.  If your looking for a very nice inexpensive lens to add to your arsenal, look at the 50 mm f/1.8 Nikon lens.  B&H has this lens at a very reasonable price.  DT
