50mm

Following Tom's request to generate more traffic for this forum, I thought it might be fun to do some more lens-specific threads. To start as broad as possible, I thought I'd start with a thread dedicated to the focal length you just can't have enough lenses of. 

So, please feel free to append your photos taken with any 50mm lens on any camera body. It'd be nice if you told us which lens you were using, to get some ideas about the rendering of that specific lens and feed our GAS. 

Have fun!

I just love this lens. Small, cheap, lightweight and I really enjoy the rendering. All photos taken with the Nikon D600.

My Husky Trooper meets Smoky. This is the end of their first day together, a day that started with Smoky taking off for parts unknown for hours after first seeing him. Luckily they quickly decided to be friends.

Trooper knows that he just chased Smoky under that chair, so just where did she disappear to?

Why do you love this lens? I know it's good stopped down, but most lenses are, so why is this lens different in your view?

I have this lens and virtually never use it, although it is one of my sharpest lenses but I find its wide open purple fringing to be a problem and F2 is not fast enough for interesting bokeh imho. This lens also has quite harsh bokeh. I just don't see the appeal of this lens.

I have the Leitz Canada version, and i love its rendering amd oo transition, on FF. It differs from other lenses i have. I find it very suitable with cold and metallic subjects
