Looking at these on my iPad, but they look awesome!

Especially like the rain shots but the composition of corona #1 is great!

For some first shots with the 50mm, they look pretty impressive!
I really like the corona and lemon idea :)

Pretty cool how you got the water drops. You exploited the DOF in the Corona shot.

i love this lens, when i go to the planting fields around my area id say about 80% of the photos are taken with the 50mm. absolutly love the wide aperture


Im better behind the lens then in front of it.

i agree with everyone.. go out and shoot.. shoot breakfast, dinner, out the front door, cars going by.. anything you can.. to see how it handles things... get familiar with it..
i use mine indoors, low light and no flash @ the kids... and animals

standing outside.. shooting in at my dog.. she is tough to get pics of...as you can see with her colors..
this is only a test shot.. so it is flawed in many ways..
