I just got a new Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens and I’m trying to make friends with it, but it just won’t cooperate! It’s a manual focus lens–because I’m the world’s worst researcher– and no matter what I do, it never focuses on the point I want it to focus on. So, adios bitchacho!!! Back it goes. I don’t care if it looks all shiny and new with seductive settings and abilities. It’s driving me bonkers! If anyone has any other ideas, please share. I need all the help I can get!!!
I’m madly in love with my Nikon 35mm 1.8 prime lens! I bought it last year and kind of ignored it for a while–I always grabbed my telephoto lens first. I love how responsive this prime lens is in low light situations. It gives me awesome bokeh and great focus! If you’re looking for a great Christmas gift to put under the tree for a photography buff, I can totally recommend this little lens. It’s relatively inexpensive too.
