Default 20 minutes before sunrise.

I took this twenty minutes before sunrise while sitting at a stop light. Hand held, ISO 800.

Facing north, I presume.

Are those streetcar tracks?

Aren't large apertures fun?

1/500 second? What for?

I was driving north, those are just regular railroad tracks and yes large aperture are very fun! I was using Aperture priority and the camera just choose 1/500.

I've been eyeing this lens myself. However, should I be concerned about the purple fringing that is evident in image #1 (around the fluorescent lights)? The second image (kid with the basketball appears tack sharp thpough.

Hi Jelpee, here is a corrected version of that photo. Corel paint shop pro one step purple fringe fix. It just took a second to fix, I wouldn't let that stop you from getting this great lens.

I have the 35f/1.8 and the 50f/1.4, both AF-S, and I want a fast 85. If only Nikon made an AF-S 85.

Well, a fast one, and maybe FX?

ive been thinking of getting the 50mm 1.8 but after doing a bit of research i think i might be better off with the 35mm, im thinkin because of the crop factor if the 50mm is effectivly a 75mm then thats maybe a little on the long size for using indoors or anywhere with limited space.
does anyone else have any opinions on this

nice night pic btw

Thanks kazuya! I got the 35 for just the reason you mentioned, the 50 is a great little lens but just a bit long most of the time. I own both and the 35 is my fav by far!
