my thank goodness list

i only have one item.

the canon 50mm f/1,8 II lens

This is the lightest EF lens of all at a mere 4.6 oz. (130g). Compact and high-performance, standard lens. Its Gaussian optics provide sharp delineation from near to far focusing distances. The color balance is excellent for a standard lens.


this is a great lens for close up shots and portraits. i’ve had this for a few months now, and even if i’ve already bought telephoto and wide-angled lens, this is still my favorite. will be going out of town tomorrow with this camera set-up.


why do i like it? it’s so easy to use, and i can never go wrong whenever i use it. the subject gets captured clearly and the background is blurred perfectly. actually, it is close to the performance of a Leica M8 (which is $5,000 — so this’ll do).

these are some of the photos i took using the 50mm
