Here is a great little post about camera gear and lenses on girl talk which is a fantastic blog- take a look around while you are there!
She uses a Nikon and I use a Canon (and of course I'll root for Canon) but I completely agree with her on fixed (prime) lenses! I'm a huge fan of my 50 f/1.8mm prime. One of my first photos with it (straight out of the camera):

Yeah, I think that it's a good investment.


  1. Yeah, for the money that 50 1.8 is really a great little lens, it was all I had until just a few weeks ago.

  2. I love your photography! What other lenses do you use?

  3. I didn't know you had a blog Abi! I clicked your name from your comment and found this sweet little website. =)
    I was just talking with another mom last week about the 50mm lens- she loves hers, too. I need to look into getting one....

  4. Hi Abi,

    I have every reason to believe I'll be a prime lens girl, yet I wanted one great zoom for outdoors. So I saved up and went all out. 70-200 2.8 L IS And it's worth every single penny. In my defense, I did buy mine used.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments!

  5. I have the same lens and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!
