I got an early birthday present from Jenna, a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 :) I’ve wanted a 50mm normal lens for a while, so this was perfect. For those who wonder why a lens that can’t zoom is so great, it makes it much more light sensitive (lower f number = greater aperture = more light). Put the other way around, it’s a faster lens since you can use a higher shutterspeed. That means I can take pictures when others have to use a flash, or of things in motion, and that I can take pictures with shallower depth of field (area in focus). Apparently, it produces nice sharp pictures and has good colour reproduction, although I’ve yet to take enough pictures with it to see the difference.
