Great tyro 2007-10-28 2:12

Hello, Michael.

This is very nice indeed - I love those beautiful pastel colours in the sky and water.

It's incredibly clear and sharp too - do you tend to use that 50mm prime lens in preference to the usual zoom which everyone seems to use these days?

Kind Regards,

Default To tyro: 50mm

Hi John

It is a fantastic lens .. I use it for portraits and low light situations .. It is also useful around the house (grandchildren etc) It is so sharp too. I bought it second hand and it is one of my better buys :0)

It makes you move around to get the shot as opposed to Zooms ... some have commented that the top of the mast on one of the boats is missing .. to get that I would have had to step backwards quite a bit and that IMOP would have spoilt the balance of the shot.

If you look on Ebay they go for about 60 ... well worth bidding on
