1) What lenses do you own and why do you love/hate each of them?
Canon EF 50mm 1.8II:
My first lens ever cuz its a prime (never liked zoom even in my P&S days). image quality is good and it was cheap. Build quality isnt so important for me. I hate nothing about it except the lens hood makes it look like 50% bigger and not so small anymore.
Vivitar 28mm f/2.5 m42:
I found out my 50mm 1.8 can be quite narrow on my aps-c body and sometimes i just needed more area to work with. I dont got a lot of money so i thought well, why dont just buy an older lens which is way cheaper and totally made out of metal? So i browsed ebay and found one in nearly mint condition.
Hate nothing about it so far except its really a pain in the ass to focus well with my 1100D
I got no AF confirm adapter, perhaos i should change that. Any recommendations?
2) How long have you been into photography?
Well just 4 months if i start counting from the moment i got a DSLR. But i always enjoyed photography before when i just had a P&S. In Holidays i used to do long exposure photography and free hand panoramas with my Finepix F10. It didnt turn out too awesome but that days i was already wanting more than just snapshotting randomly. I could feel the potential there is in photography or something like this. So imho im a photographer a long time already but "serious" with a DSLR just 4 months.
3) Any random tips for a noob like myself?
Enjoy what u do and dont get caught up in too much technical stuff.
