During my few days of holiday I tried my new 50mm 1.7 to shoot some portraits and it's incredibly sharp even with my lack of manual focusing skills. fantastic lens. here are some examples:



1/200s f5.6 iso 200



1/180s f4.5 iso200 flash

next were taken with kit lens



1/60s f7.1 iso 400



1/125s f5.6 iso 200



1/125s f7.1 iso 200



1/800s f4.5 iso 200



no pp except resizing and one photo cropped. all comments welcomed.

Was that K or A or M favor of the proven 50MM? Great pict and lens. They are the work horse of the Pentax prime lens. Inexpensive yet comparable to the best.
Keep posting.

Sorry don't have technical feedback but I like #801 - he's already saying he's #1

This one is excellent. there's a lot more "dynamics" in this one than in a "posed" one.

Composition is excellent, notice how the shadow falls right into the bottom corner. Together with the darker ground it creates a sort of 'X' trough the image. Very nice light & colors too.



The last one is nice too.
Nice to see some portraits on here, it can be a very challenging assignment to make an interesting portrait.

thumbs up!

Thanks everyone. It's much easier to shoot candids with dSLR than with my FZ 10. fast autofocus makes big difference when shooting babies (not literally :-)). I took a lot of photos of this little guy, with slower autofocus it'd be imposibble, he's moving too fast, there's no posng from him you just have to be fast to catch him on camera.

These are very nice - love that little guy, but my favorite is the last one. I like the lighting in the first one, but like the expression in the last one better. Looks like you won't have any trouble with that 50mm lens!
