The best value lens on the planet at a good price
Aka The nifty fifty

Compared to your kit lens, this lens has two differences. The first is that it doesn't zoom, it's only 50mm, turn your current lens to 50mm to see what that's like.

The second difference is that the maximum aperture (f1.8) is much much wider than the maximum on your kit lens, which I'm guessing is maximum f5.6 at 50mm? A wider aperture has two big benefits - the first is that it lets much more light in to the camera, meaning you can take photos in dimmer conditions with fast shutter speeds that freeze the action - handy if your kids are running around indoors. The second benefit is that it gives a really nice background blur, or 'bokeh', to your photos, similar to what 'portrait' modes on smartphones are trying to imitate. This is really nice for photos of people.

I would take a look through your current lens set to 50mm to get an idea - it's a lot more 'zoomed in' than you'd think. If you're happy, just buy it and try it. You can sell it second hand for close to purchase value anyway. It's a really nice lens - it was on my Canon 90% of the time, and it will take photos that your phone could never achieve.

If you have a Canon SLR, this should be the first lens in your collection. Lightweight, and insanely sharp for the price. Would cost more for a service on your 5D!

An absolute must for anyone with a DSLR.
Absolute steal. I paid £50 for my second-hand version of v2 of this lens. Sharp, light and brings a real portrait ability for a very cheap price. Great lens.
Nice price for a nifty fifty. So tempted but I've bought two lenses in the last month already! Arghhhhhhhhh

Not a bad lens. But find it can be very soft at f1.8. definitely worth it as a beginner lens but still feel it's limited if you want tack-sharp images and good subject fall-off.

For £70 can't really go wrong though!

Yes you can, you have to buy an adapter around £20 so I think is better to go for the Nikon one, better quality

I love this lens, beautiful portraits. However, it isn’t one you’ll keep on long with kids, there isn’t IS on this so it’s hard to get a super sharp photo of kids who can’t keep still.
