After using the 50mm prime lens with my Canon DSLR for some time, I think I’m getting a hang of it. It is undoubtedly one of the first non-kit lenses you should purchase. I am no expert, but it does give me the result I expect from a DSLR. The images are tack sharp and sufficiently stuffed with the creamy bokeh or blur effect. This post is based on what
My Nifty Fifty takes portraits and landscapes alike. In fact, I’ve tried a few macro photos as well. And the result has been satisfactory.
Amongst the many benefits that we see a mirrorless has over a DSLR, we must accept the points discussed in this post, although with a pinch of salt.

This post lists down the points I gleaned. Though it is true that the new Single Lens Translucent Mirror (SLT) or Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras (MILCs)
This post is a part of the series of posts on Photography Basics. I like to share what I learn. And, photography is one topic that I talk about quite often, these days.
