Whether you are a fan of fixed lenses or not, Peter McKinnon shows us why we must have the nifty fifty. You would think that the more expensive the lens is the better your images will be. I do not think this is true in any way, however, I do believe that having a nice glass is a must.

For those of us that can’t afford really expensive glass or simply do not use it that much to justify the price, here are the more affordable options.

  1. Nikon 50mm f/1.8G
  2. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
  3. Sony FE 50mm F1.8
