I got a new lens for my Canon T2i this Christmas!
It’s a great portrait lens, incredibly sharp and it can get such a shallow depth of field. Having said that, there’s been a little learning curve in using this lens. My only other lens is the 15-55 mm lens that came with the camera (the “kit lens”). This lens can zoom in and out, while my new 50 mm lens can’t zoom. Because of this, you’re forced to physically step towards or away from your subject. And, more often than not, I’ve found myself trying to step backwards, only to bump into a desk or a wall. Still, when the conditions are right, the lens produces great images.
