After much researching, asking around, wondering; the husband decided to take me to the camera shop to do some actual lens snooping and trying on the D90.
I had a budget I intended to spend in mind. But before I knew it, after some discussions and laughs over price points with the shop owner on the 35mm vs. 50mm, f1.8, f1.4, f1.2, and material of shutter blades (which I simply could not afford!!!) the husband purchased my very first prime lens! He had spent money meant for a brand new pair of home theatre wharfedales, on his wife’s desire to get a prime! And while I felt guilty to deprive the audiophile a pair of brand new speakers (managed to convince ourselves the 3-year old ones were still good), I was incredibly happy at this gift. “Sure beats any branded wallets, handbags – HANDS DOWN!”, I exclaimed…while all ready to try on my new baby with snaps of everywhere we went thereafter.
Here’s some fun:
