What do you use your DX 50mm for?
Nov 3, 2010

What kind of pictures do you normally take with your 50mm prime on DX?
What is it good for? Any example shots?

I just got one and I'm not sure if I should keep it anymore. I planned to get it for portraits because I feared my 80-200mm f/2.8 would not be wide enough. I found out it is wide enough, I just have to change up my technique a little and step back.

Plus, while I was waiting for mine to arrive from online, I borrowed a friend's and didn't enjoy using it that much, although I only had it for like 20 minutes.
