Finally after shooting with my camera for a year... I managed to save up for a new lens. The ever famous "Nifty Fifty". This lens has been famous for making photos look awesome with ultra blurry backgrounds and a master of subject isolation.
This lens is also said to be perfect for light travelers since it's made with light materials, plastic, and with its compact size, you can't go wrong with this one if you're concerned with weight. I think this is Canons shortest and lightest lens as of date... which makes it more awesomer!
It has auto and manual focus aswell... the manual focus couldnt be used that much since the ring is said to be really small... I have yet to see it... will let you guys know as soon as I get my hands on it.
And like I said above, it's perfect for isolating subjects since it can really produce sharp images because of its capability to open its aperture up to f1.8! so hello milky-blurry backgrounds on my next shots.
And I guess the best out of it is it's price!!! It's only priced at Php 4,300 on DPOnline store. With it's price and it's capabilities... I guess it's a perfect 2nd lens for a hobbyist like me.
So come Saturday... I'll have a new toy to play with! next stop... a zoom lens :D
