Nifty Fifty

Bokeh-tastic.

Show us your favourite Nifty Fifty shots here. OK there may only be 3 of us with this lens but I'm feeling selfish .





Alex Glass

Great photos Lowlight.

Look forward to seeing more.
Lone Groover

Hadn't previously noted you as a show off.

File under elitist.

   
Stuball

Show off and elitist? Count me in on that one

These have been posted before but they are all 50mm shots. I sometimes go out on walkabout and only use the nifty fifty.

Think 50mm is 50mm but then i suppose there will be a pedant somewhere with an answer as to why your 50mm is disallowed

Oh jigs, we need a working party set up to discuss Alans 50 mm 1.7 thing

1. Is it effectively cheating?
2. 1.7mm...hmmm, so whits wrong with 1.4? might give the photies a slightly different look!
3. Diz it fit on a sooper digital camera?...if not Na Na Na Na
4. Do ye get that wonderful bokeh?
5. And...when you are out and about do you pretend to onlookers it's a NIFTY FIFTY? ....you do realise there is definitely a different way to pose with a NIFTY
So after discussion, coffee, and more pish talk...should it be allowed...colleagues?
AlanM

The 1.4 is a couple of hundred pounds dearer.

Nice bokeh, lovley Minolta colours and works perfectly on my DSLR

50mm@f1.7

Och i say we need some posting of samples and a delegation party chaired by someone of great importance at first i thought about nominating Jeff Healey then i remembered about his unfortunate predicament.

Dodgy exchange rates and a bloody great big earthquake and tsunami to blame for that.

You might be able to pick up a used one for sensible money.


I got a Sony 50mm f1.4 for 199 to replace my old Minolta 50mm F1.7

Is 50mm the one they say is as close you can get to what human eyes see the world like?

Oh, and does an 18-55mm count if it's locked at 50mm?  

Some of the photos in her are belters. Love the B&W street photography.
cybers

35mm is the one deemed the same as human field of view though most 50mm are actually closer to 62mm due to the crop sensor on most consumer and pro-sumer DSLR

35mm f1.8 is truly awesome cash compared to the relatively inexpensive 50mm

With the lens I have I think the best I can do at 35mm is about f/2.

Booooo etc.  
cybers

Thats still impressive ... too many people place emphasis on the f without getting to the clarity some of the finest lenses made by Canon struggle to get below f4

It's hard for some people to wrap their head around for sure. They think it's a fixed number with a certain width of opening. It is but that width changes with every lens due to the fact that an f-number is dimensionless and s determined by other factors directly tied to whatever lens is being mentioned.

EDIT:

Just checked online there. To buy a 50mm f/1.7 Prime you could also buy a 55-300mm tele!

Bust lip bleeding nose and lots of screams from a two year old ... Bravo council ...Well Played not.
