I take mostly cat pictures and the flash would disturb them so the 50mm is the best way to go I guess. The price is decent and I can use it outside as well.


Hi Jeff,

I had overlap with focal lengths, I had a 28-70 and was considering why I might want a 50 but the 50 1.8 is a fast lens, other things are possible with a fast lens.

However cat pictures, here is mine.

I forget which lens, but it was with flash, (indirect flash, bounced). It didn't seem to disturb her and I got her eyes wide open as they were in the lowlight conditions I took the photo in.
