Nifty Fifty

I've, just treated myself to an Ebay Minolta AF Nifty Fifty to use on my Sony Alpha 55, it is functioning as it should, and I can't wait to put it through its paces.

I realise it will be great for Street Photography ( I do a fair bit of that)...

Any other ideas, to get the best use from it please?

Cheers!

Sadly no......it's the 1.7.......I have posted an example of what can do in my most recent post called Loop Rustique.

Looks like you have a bargain buy there Smile

Slightly cheaper than the new Zeiss 50mm F1.4 at circa 1,300 ! !
