"B" rather than "2" since it's a successor thread, not a new mark.
Original thread was here.

Since it's a constant 50mm, is there a minimum handheld shutter speed to consider?

My first foray intonthis lens a year ago produced a lot of blurry images and a few good ones.


Thank you. bw!

Was messing around with this lens and some Kenko extension tubes tonight with varied results...

Yep. Without IS, you need steady hands and good technique to get good clean shots. I try to stay at 1/80 or faster. I think the rule of thumb is 1 / focal length x crop factor. On my T1i, that basically means 1/80 or faster. With steady hands and good technique, you might be able to pull off 1/60 or 1/30.
