  1. When I got my Xti, Tim told me it would be a matter of time before I had a bag full of lenses, etc. Well, I just recieved my new lens. The Canon 50mm f/1.8 II. Im so excited about this lens. I took some pics of my kids at school with my 18-55 kit lens but was wishing for more bokeh (the background was not exactly ideal). Time to go play with my new lens!

    for 80 bucks or whatever it costs now, it is a steal of a lens.

    it's unofficial nickname since it hit the market

    "the plastic fantastic"
  4. I like the other nickname "the nifty fifty". I happy to report that my lens has not yet succumb to some of the reports. It fell of a chair this morning but happily did not shatter into pieces! Watch next time I pick it up it will break....oh I hope not. :-\
