New addition to the family

Nikon50mm

The Prahl family has once again increased by 1. No, we haven’t had any more children. But, the arrival of a new lens to the Prahl-Nikon family has been met with joy and happiness. The little guy is just as cute as a button and with a maximum (or is is minimum? I get it confused all the time) aperature setting of 1.8 he is quite impressive. Here is a sample I took this morning just messing around. Notice at the 1.8 setting how it blurs the background. Here’s another of my son doing some sort of trick he said. It works really well especially when taking portrait like shots of people. I bought it used off of Ebay for $79 including shipping. B and H Photo has them new for 95$ to 100$ not including shipping. It’s a little wierd using the lens because it’s a fixed focal length were as my other two lenses are zoom type so you have to move yourself in and out more to get the shot framed the way you want. Overall it looks to be a great addition to my camera equipment.

  1. When I first started reading this… I thought…. it’s physically impossible for you to have an addition to your family. LOL. As I read further I figured out you were refering to your new lens. You need to get your credit card “fixed” too, to avoid more additions to your family. It seems to be a loop hole the doctor didn’t fix. Okay I’m done being funny. I’m extremely jealous, and now I want one. I’m sure you will get some great photos of your kids.

  2. cool! looks like a must have – i will add it to my long wishlist ;)

  3. I bought this lens about a month ago and think it’s a great little piece of kit! Definately a good buy!
