I was visiting family in Toronto and took a ferry to Center Island and I hand held this shot with my K-x and a M50 f/1.7. I personally love this picture and a lot of people have said it looks like it came from a Google search. I hope y'all enjoy

Finally got it to work here's the full size https://flic.kr/p/ny1Xp1

Are the limiteds worth the price difference in terms of IQ compared to the cheaper plastic DAs? I've heard/read good things about the da 35 f2.4

i think i understand...

two lenses on the same camera will look the same. but if i want a picture to look similar taken from a 50mm on an apsc i would need a ~75mm on a FF?

so me taking test shots at ~115mm was all in vain..hahah

but why do people say having a FF lens on a crop factor is like having a longer focal length..is that not true?

ok and about the distortion...i think i read somewhere that distortions are only apparent when the relative distances of the object are closer to the lens..ex taking pictures of two objects that are 2 ft apart from a couple hundred of feet away would make it more 'flat' than say taking it from only 10 ft away. is there any kind of rule of thumb to combat distortion without making the image look flat if i choose the fa31 and want to also do individual portraits..will it be to short?

its somewhat of a 'graduation' picture type thing outside in a park...and i figure my manual lens would be a little hard to focus with accuracy and speed..which is why i was thinking about getting the 50...should i use a little wider lens? only reason i never considered a wider lens was that i read that it would distort the image a little..

other options from the rentals website are the DA 40 ltd and the FA 31 1.8 ltd

should i also stick with a fixed focal length or get one that can zoom...

hey guys i am supposed to be taking some pictures for my friends its going to be about a group of 3-5 people. i currently have a M 50 1.7 and the 2 kit lenses that came with the Kx.

i was going to rent one of the aforementioned lenses in the title for the week i do the photos and im currently stuck choosing. from what i understand, the image of the 50 and the 70 should be similar in respects to what is going to be framed in the image at the same distances, but the 77 is going to be more zoomed in...due to the fact of the crop factor that makes it look like its a 115.5 lens. i was doing some test shots with my 55-300 to see how far i would need to be to fit about 4 ppl in the frame. it was probably about 40 ft...and much less for the other lenses.

would y'all choose the 'longer' lens over the two shorter ones?

thanks for the help
