Just in time for our trip to New Zealand (just over 2 weeks to go now) I've just got another new lens. It's a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, not the most glamorous lens I know but it was bought because I wanted to have a lens I could use in low light. The two zooms I have a great but the widest aperture available to me up until now was f/3.5. The 50mm lens gives me a lot more light to play with.

Nikon D80, Nikkor lenses: 35mm f1.8 G AF-S DX, 50mm f/1.8 AF D, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF AF-S DX, 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR, SB800 flash

Hi Phil, good to hear about the new purchase!

It's certainly nice to have a sub-f2.0 lens in the collection! I'm relieved I could turn to my 85mm f1.8 when photographing that comet the other month. My other zooms at f3.5-5.6 or f4 just didn't cut the mustard.

What sort of low light photography are you into?
