      I had two f/1.8 and now I have a f/1.4, I enjoy it much too, faster quieter focusing and colors pop more, but the nifty fifty still is the most bang for the buck Canon lens !

      Nice shots, but you need to clean your camera/lense. You have dust showing up!

      Do you have anymore night shots wide open? Are they prety fast to focus at dark places?

    11. 12-17-2007 10:35 PM #46
      f/1.8 came out looking funky, so here's a 4.8

      Its pretty good in low light, I usually use manual focus in the complete dark though:

      oh completely! I've never had so much fun or such great results with $100 with any of my other gear. a close second is my multi-coated polarizer, like $110, but it only gets used once in a blue moon.

      if you're talking about my shot....it's not oversaturated...that's just his neons! the flash hitting him also brings out the color...

      I'm not a huge fan of the focal length on an APS-C camera myself.. but the lens is good none-the-less..

      f/4

      f/4

      f/3.2

      f/6.3

      with the 1.4x TC.. f/1.8

      here is another one I took real quick just cause the lens happened to still be attached to the body.

      I would love to play my strat through that amp!

      I have a mk1, metal mount 1.8. makes such a difference, way higher quality and got it almost brand new for $80 here's a little bit of everything:

      So what's the general thought? Is the 1.4 worth the money over the 1.8? Is it worth the price difference?

      I ask because the 50mm is going to be my next lens. I absolutely love the pictures these lenses produce.

      there is a price to pay, for everything you gain.

      just got my 50mm yesterday and am loving it. here's a few samples ..






    31. 12-29-2007 02:06 AM #66
      honestly the 1.4 is worth the money if u have it and are ready to blow it...
      if not i have the 1.8 and LOVE IT.... altho even i say the focal lenth falls short untill about f2.2

      these are all shot with the f1.8 on a canon xti...

      I like my 50mm. I'm honestly tempted to pick up an 85mm prime to add to my bag as well - pretty much solely for portrait use. This was just screwing around with the 50, but I kind of like the shot anyway.

      make shiny.
      If crazy paid the bills.. I'd be freaking rich.

      haha its a sweet little stack... fender's clean channels are a little bright tho, the distortion is nice, tho not to much crunch its great for classic rock dirty sounds like zeppelin and skynard and such..
