    The "NEW" 50mm f/1.8 Lens War Thread!

    It's my turn now. I goy my 1.8 II yesterday, and I'm looking to start a fight. The rules from the last thread apply here. Only one difference. To spur on the competition between my fellow 50mm 1.8r's I am going to pick my favorite image posted in this thread and send the winner an 8x10 of one of my images!

    Bring it on!

    Here's a couple from today. These are some our neighborhood kids. They saw me trying to take photos of flying birds and wound up wanting their picture taken. So I took advantage of the setting sunlight and took a couple quick snaps at f/2.8.
