Canon 50mm f/1.8 At Last!

My family and I have a lot of plans on things to do this summer leave as I will be in Malaysia for two months. I will want to cherish those memories in photos, sharp photos. So since I officially turned 20 years old according to the Gregorian calendar, I decided to give myself a piece of glass that marks the end of my teenage child years. It is the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, costed me RM240 with a 52mm Kenko multi coated UV filter.

My Canon 600D with Canon 50mm f/1.8 mounted and Sigma 18-50 f/2.8-4.5 OS HSM beside it.
This small upgrade means a lot with my age. I may no longer be a teenager according to my age, but do I feel ready to accept the fact that I should move on to the young adult stage? I don't know. It doesn't seem right yet. I still need to learn more on to be tolerating, to be patient, to be wise in life. So no big leaps. Everything should move with the flow.

And this lens is exactly that. All noobs dream of pro equipment, but the problem is will they know how to use it? Will the investment worth the money? No. I prefer spending so little but make the best out of it.

So about the lens, it is a piece of large glass floating in a plastic mount. It is weak. I will have to treat them with special care compared to my tough Sigma. There are kids who asked, "where is the zoom?" nope it has no zoom, and that's what makes it so special and produces sharp images. Let's upload some images.
In a controlled environment without stray lights at the background the bokeh is nice. Plus with the nice sharp subject and a shallow depth of field I can isolate the person as the subject effectively. This is when this lens really delivers more than we expect it should.
I chose this photo taken without permission from the person hehe. My 50mm f/1.8 produces nice sharp images wide open and renders the background blurry. But the 5 bladed aperture design doesn't produce nice bokeh quality. But to me, come on, normal people wont even notice them although I do. I am abnormal.
the Canon 50mm f/1.8 bokeh wide open at f/1.8. Nice rounds!
If I stop down my Canon 50mm f/1.8 to f/4 the aperture blade shape begin to announce its presence. Simple gear limitations can be used in favour of us or work around it. That's who I plan to handle it.
More lenses? Slowly.
Teenagers maybe have the body and strength of an adult, but our judgement and wisdom is nowhere near close. Slowly. Take one step at a time. It is called growth, a path towards wisdom.
