The Canon 50mm 1.8 is surely the lightest lens I’ve had. It weighs 130gm only…not bulky when I carry it around in my bag, not too heavy when I mount it with my already heavy camera. It works efficiently at night, gives an excellent background blur for my food shots, gives you great detail for portrait shots and just add an extension tube to it and you got a reliable macro lens. There’s a handful more good reason why you should own a Canon 50mm 1.8 but the downside is you can’t get everything in a frame easily when you are too near your subject. Take above example…the Wiener Secession is located near the Naschmarkt and there’s very little space in front of it…very few steps from the Friedrichstraße…either one should go to the other side of the street or be in the middle of the road…one that I wasn’t able to do and another that I won’t risk…so here the top part of the photo has been cut off.Partly you see three gorgon heads, they represent architecture, sculpture and painting. The side walls feature owls, formed by Olbrich himself. Together with the Gorgons they attribute to Pallas Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, victory and the crafts.
