I have been doing photography for a few years now. I started just taking pictures of my family, then my extended family, and then friends. I used my kit lens because I didn't have the money to invest in a better, more expensive lens. I was kind of sad because I REALLY wanted another lens.
I talked with some friends in my area that had a lot more experience that I did to get some recommendations. They all recommended that I get the 50 mm 1.8. So, I looked it up and researched it. I thought, hmm, for 100ish dollars, why not. So I ordered it. I was super excited and couldn't wait. It arrived very quickly and I put it right on my camera. WOW!! What a huge difference! The pictures where very sharp and the background blur was amazing. I have to tell ya, I have purchased more lenses since then, quite a bit more expensive, but I have found that this lens rarely leaves my camera. It is great for portraits, newborns, action, and great in low light!
If you are like me and need a great lens that is inexpensive, but a great lens, I HIGHLY recommend this one!!
