This is a question for the serious photographers, (no phone cams or the cheezy ass point n shoots with no viewfinder, im talking people with real dSLRs here that know what they doing)

Anyone have any tips for using the EF 50mm f/1.8 lens? (or whatever the Nikkon and Sony equivilent is at 50mm) I have one but im kinda worried to use it since im worried ill miss out on something that I coulda got with my EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.0 IS lens. Is there a steep learning curve on how to work with a prime lens vs a zoom lens, and is their any advantage to using the 50mm prime lense over my kit lens.

My primary photography subjects outside of vacation stuffs is Rail/Subway photography and Flowers with DOF and Macro shots.

Im considering getting the 28mm f/2.8 if I get better with the 50mm.

thats good. the "normal lowsize" is 4. I have a digicam (dont know how the model name is but its from panasonic i guess) with 8,2 . that cams good piccis.

which "size" does your cam make? (meaning: which picci-data likes jpeg or bitmap, and how maybe saveplace , megabites)

Ahhh so you got a new lens! The BEST part about that lens is the f/1.8 aperture which makes it perfect for low light conditions, but the only problem is that it's a fixed lens... which makes it more affordable but trickier to use I guess.I think Shane got one of those lenses for his Sony a500, you should ask him about it and have him show you some pics, underground shots are very awesome with that lens!
