I bit the bullet and bought the second ever lens for my camera! It’s a fairly basic Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, but I’m still amazed at how sharp and how much depth of field it can generate. Here are a few test shots I took on my commute to and back from work.

Pretty neat! Still debating whether I should use it as my daily driver — while the quality of photos is ridiculously higher than the kit lens that I use, the fixed focal length is definitely a huge challenge. I find myself having to step back really far in order to capture the subject that I want to take. Argh!
