It’s no secret to those that know me but my favorite and go to lens is my 50mm AF Nikkor f/1.8 lens. I have an arsenal of other lenses and I use them all regularly, but my all time favorite go to lens is the 50mm f/1.8 lens. I’ve taken thousands of images with my 50mm and it’s gone all around the world with me. Just recently I bought a new/used 50mm and it just arrived. It’s kind of sad to stop using my old 50. I feel like it’s an old faithful dog that I’m putting down and getting a new energetic puppy.
Several years ago, I did a 365 day project called “Project 365 PEOPLE 2010” and took a portrait of a person everyday for a year … with the 50mm! It was an experience. http://www.flickr.com/photos/scotthuckphoto/sets/72157622993693495/
On a positive note, I will be re-purposing the old 50 on my Nikon D3 … which I’m equally excited about!
I’m thinking about naming my new 50mm since I plan to have it with me for a long time.
