It's just the 50mm 1.8. Only $89. I am kicking myself for waiting this long to buy it! I am not sure I will ever put the kit lens back on! Of course, now I want more more more!!!!!

The picture is great! Can you tell me what makes it a portrait lens? Why is it better than the kit lens? Questions Questions!

Well, the kit lens is just a basic lens with a zoom. The portrait lens ap goes all the way to 1.8, which makes for great DOF, which is what you want in a portrait. To focus on the child, not the backdrop or background. Plus, the zoom lens is a little distorting for portraits.

Ahhh, silly me, I thought you already had the 50mm, I love it too...I haven't gotten to use mine as much here lately because it seems I've been shooting all sports and Lord knows I have to have the zoom for that.
It'll be getting a good workout soon though, on vacation.

Well, it was ditto until I got my last two lenses. Now I have a 35mm 1.8, 50mm 1.8, and 85mm 1.8. Gotta love those portrait lenses! I'd get a zoom lens for portraits if the ones with the low aperture didn't cost more than my camera. You're right that your kit lens will probably not go back on your camera.

I love my 50MM lense. that is what I use all the time.

I would like an 85mm lense, but I would have to get even farther away from the subject for other shots.

I really like my 85mm for when I go to the park with the boys or other kids because then I don't have to be right in their face with my camera and I will still get close ups. It puts the kids a little more at ease and I'm able to get more natural expressions.

my 50 doesn't leave my camera either.

Next for me is the 85. I thought dh was buying it for me a few months ago, but it han'st shown up yet. My guess is that I'm getting it for chirstmas, b/c I mentioned that I was going to order it, and he sure threw a fit, and told me I better wait, and that put all KINDS of warning bells, b/c he never tells me no like that.
