D40 with 50mm f/1.4D

August 9th, 2011 · 4 Comments



Yup! I’m still using my 3 years old Nikon D40 dslr. But after 3 years, I need more, specially when shooting people. I recently bought the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D lens. It’s an awesome lens. The images are very sharp. It’s just awesome! However…….it works with D40 but it just won’t autofocus. It’s very very challenging to focus manually, specially when you have a less perfect vision like me and you have to shoot your subject fast. So i guess it’s time to upgrade my Cylops (my d40′s name :P )

Check out this test shot with the 50mm f1.4D lens. Watch out for more in my flick.
