Canon’s best kept secret

Nifty-Fifty 3

Canon 50mm @ F11 – ISO 640 & 1/125 sec (6D body)

The Canon South Africa 50mm F1.8 lens from Orms at R 1, 295.00 is the cheapest lens I know of. I bought one and used it to take the photo below. Some call the lens the Nifty-Fifty, others “Canon’s best kept secret” and I call it “BIG FUN”. The photo below was taken this morning in 5 Star Durban. For the price (cheap), I am totally bowled over by this little monster!

  1. Hi Andy. I’m still using the kit lens 18 – 55mm while I’m learning. Not having used anything else I am sure it will be a big surprise when I do. I am starting to get a little frustrated now when I can’t get close enough to subjects without walking!!! Keep well. James
