Wow, beautiful shots. I love that second one!

Makes me glad I have the Nikon d50 as well. :)

Which lense do you shoot those with?

Why don't we just start a full on D50 thread and every person has the OBLIGATION to post at least one image per week, list an original, a corrected version, and then which lens they shot on!

hey thanks. these are with the stock 28-80mm f3.5. i'm looking into getting some primes. can the standard film type nikon lenses be used?

Yes they can. Nikon has been fairly consistent with their mount for years and years. The problem with using a non AF lens is that you cannot use any of the auto functions of the camera, but you can use them.

I've been using a 28mm 2.8 prime with my camera coupled with my 50mm 1.8, 17mm-55mm 3-4.5, 70-210 2.8, and 70-210 4-5.6.

I want to just start buying primes though. My 70-210 2.8 is a Vivitar and it is so slow, soft, and heavy that it is almost useless to own.

I will start a D50 picture thread. We don't need to make it a sticky or anything, but this should be a fun way to share techniques, settings, lens comparisons, and just photos to help us all improve.
