So...I immediately went out to the backyard to take some pictures. The lens is s 50mm f/1.8 and it's awesome! It took some great shots! Here's my favorites:
These pictures are of our doggies/children, Hamlet & Ophie.
This first pic of Hamlet is good, except I didn't catch him in the sunlight so I think his face is a little too dark.
Better, I realized my shadow was in the way so I moved:
Ophie. I LOVE this. It really captures her personality. I can tell how much better shooting with SLR is. Normally I can't get this much color and definition in her face...usually you just see undefined blackness.
