Re: 50mm 1.8 Lens

I think the 50mm is a great lens, and not just for the price. I also have the 85 1.8, but notice it's not so sharp until F4, where the 50mm seems uniformly sharp all over. That may just be by copy of the lenses.

Of course, being a slightly longer lens the 85 is a little more prone to camera shake I think. Overall, my 50 sees much more action than the 85, which I tend to save for well-lit situations.

When held firmly, and at F4, the 85 is an excellent lens.

Everything I write is a personal opinion. Even when I quote facts, they are the facts I personally choose to accept.
