Playing with Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens at Heide Museum of Modern Art

Last weekend I picked up a Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens and, of course, had to try it out. Late Saturday afternoon Donna and I went over to the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Bulleen to view the galleries and I took the camera with me to take shots out of doors with it. I do like the lens and for under $200 I don’t think I could really go wrong with it. It’s early days in getting used to what happens with a fast lens and what to watch out for but I think these shots below do show some promise for it (especially the nice bokeh at the largest apertures).
