I dont own any primes. All zooms. OK to photograph at 50MM?

LOL - FINE. 50mm. Does not matter if it is prime.

James

PS Roman - you don't have one prime lens? I am somehow really surprised by that.

Light kit and versatile. High quality zooms give me prime like sharpness and universal options for composition. As of next week will be 14-24, 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200. Most are as high a quality or darned close as any prime. Landscape is often about DOF so F/2.8 on all the lenses is perfect.

Should also have my D800 soon as well, hopefully by end of the month.

Hey Everyone,

I was asked to please clarify the rules:

1. The photo must be taken at 50mm.
2. It must follow a Nature/Wildlife/Pet Photography theme
3. It must be taken during the 30 days that the challenge was created
4. It must be posted by November 19th 2012 at 11:59 PM (LOL, we can take into account your time zone).


That's about it - I think. Usually people ask better questions to things I overly simplify. frown

James

the 14-24 is a stellar lens. I've been shooting mine for about two years now and i have two complaints, no way to screw in a filter, there are some options, but they are $$$, and lens flare is horrible! if you get the sun to strike the bulbed front element at an angle, you'll pay for it .. . I kept my 17-35 for when i need to shoot into the light . . .
