Unrealistic expectation of new 50mm f1.8?
Feb 2, 2013

I shot with my new nikon 50 mm lens last night (on D800e)  for the first time at a family bingo night in the school cafeteria.  All of the fluorescent overhead lights were on.  Setting was aperture priority f5 and ISO of 400--result was shots taken at 1/8 second.  I had to bump the ISO up to 1000 to get a reasonable hand-held shutter speed and clear photos.  I thought with such "fast" glass that I would have been able to shoot at lower ISO.  I have great equipment but I am still very much a novice. Thanks for any thoughts. Mike

ANSWER:
Nikon D800E Panasonic Lumix DMC-F5
