I really like the natural vignette effect you got in these shots with the shading on the fence and the shade/sun line in the foreground!

I got my Nifty 2 weeks ago, and shot this short music video with it on my EOS 500D. I've been composing music for around 2 years now as a hobby but this is the first time I've ever tried creating a video for one of the songs. Here's the youtube link: http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=W59w0qEHigc (external link)

And here are some screens from the video:

I liked. Both, the music and of course the video.

I have been using my Nifty about a month now, and I do like it a lot, and I use it whenever it is possible.


My gear: EOS 450D +EF 50mm F/1.8 II + EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6IS + EF-S 55-250mm 1:4-5.6 IS + Way too small amount of time

For cheap lenses, this is definitely the king.

But other than that, this lens' autofocus is basically hit or miss, and performance is
just not good enough fully open. Shooting stills with manual focus is probably the best use
for this lens, other than that, just use it as a stepping stone to get some good L glass.

I keep about 10% of the shots I get off this lens, and I rarely shoot anything unless
I know I want to keep it, since I'm not the type to run around shooting everything I see.

Compared to most L lenses I'd be keeping from 75%-90% of the shots.

---

With that said, here's a shot from before this retired, no processing what so ever,
straight out of RAW and into JPG through Photoshop, there's no point in showing post-processed
photos when conveying what a lens can do.

f/2.8, ISO 100, Manual focus

Why do people put their gear list here?
Pro photogs usually have everything anyways.
