I see everyone is pulling out their 50s ... lol. Nice.

We should make a new thread dedicated to 50mm shots. Nice shots everyone. Wow, just in a couple of days it has gone photo nuts in here. Love it

As for the question about cost for the 35 ... well, it's once of Nikon's sharpest and cheapest lenses. Just shy of 200 bucks. But I have been seeing the cost start to go up, because people are realizing how great this lens is. Now is a Crop Lens, so it's made for the Crop sensors. Nikon made a 35 for the Full frame group, but it costs 8 times as much! the 35 1.4 come just shy of 1600 wow. But the 35 1.8 DX definitely gives it a run for its money.

There's also the Sigma 30mm 1.4 that is super sharp also.

Here's the guys from DigitalREV that did a review on it. Love these guys and Kai who just makes it an interesting and entertaining review.

bold - that's an excellent idea! you should do that.

and do you know if canon makes an equivalent to the nikon version of the 35? and any idea of the canon t2i is a crop sensor or full frame?

Canons 35mm is not as cheap as the Nikon version but it does exist.

Your camera is crop. Full frame sensors are generally in very upscale bodies costing thousands.

^^He is Correct.^^
The Canon Full Frames: 5D Mark I and Mark II and the 1D Mark I-III. The 1D Mark IV just came out.

The Nikon Full Frames: D700 / D3 / D3X / D3XS. The D4 just came out for Nikon.

All of the Sony's, except the A900 are all crop sensors.

And all of the Pentax cameras are crop sensors.

All of the Olympus cameras are crop sensors.

The Panasonic cameras are 4/3rd cameras, 4/3rd the size of a full frame. About a 2 times crop.

And Sigma has one crop and one full frame camera.

The full frame cameras give you the exact equivalent of a standard full frame lens. For instance if a lens says 50mm, it is 50mm in the field of view. On a crop sensor it is 75mm. What you do is multiply your lens by 1.5x. Because Crop sensors have a 1.5 crop value to 35mm.

So, honestly, a 35mm is the closest to true 50mm on a crop sensor body.

Then there are cameras like the Mamiya and Hassalblad that are Medium Format Cameras. About 2 times the size of a Full Frame. Super expensive and super-pro. And are super heavy, I've used one once on a gig.

wowza. so if I wanted to take a 35mm style photo, would I be better to get like an 18mm (I think they make a fixed 18 for the canon), or go w/a 35 since it'll still be a closer distance lense than a 50? I'd be using it more for like portrait style and close up pictures, kind of like the two examples of the engine and girl holding the flowers, Ray.
