At the moment when I am taking pictures I like to switch between my two lenses, just to see what I can get with each. This 50mm lens I am borrowing. So, far what I like best about it is the amount of light it can let in. I also like the fast shutter speed which allows the detail of the feathers to really stand out. The downside being the fact that you have to be really close to your subject to get the picture. I know there are lenses that can do both, I have one of them on my wish list. The reason that I have not gone out and purchased additional lenses yet is this: the kit lens and the camera can do a lot, I need to get that sorted out first before I go adding on. Also the cost, my oldest has suggested I get Canon to sponsor (what she calls) my mid-life crisis.
Here are two other photos using the 50mm lens:
A profile shot!
All photos taken using my tripod. White Balance set to “shady”. All three photos have been cropped.

not sure where in the world you are but I noticed this morning that Amazon.co.uk has the ef50mm f1.8 on for £30 less than I paid for mine less than two months ago a veritable bargain.
I am based in the US at the moment so I would have to check Amazon’s US site. I do have the lenses I “need” on a price watch though this site:http://www.canonpricewatch.com/ They send me e-mails so I can feel like a savvy shopper when I have the $$$ to spend. Thanks for the tip!
looks like a useful website
