Using the nifty 50 a little more lately. I’m always pleasantly surprised by the super shallow depth of field with this lens. If you are looking for a new lens, you can’t go wrong with this one. It is an inexpensive (although not very durable as many will tell you) little lens that is perfect for portraiture and for capturing a select part of the picture of in focus while giving a smooth blurring effect in the background. It was the first lens that I bought after my kit lens and still love it!
