Well you're already one step ahead because you are shooting in manual, and you seem to have a good grasp of what everything does :)

Haha you'll get it! And then it'll be second nature. You'll be able to change settings and stuff on the fly like it's nobody's business lol.

I adore my 50mm f/1.8 D! Adore it! I have a "walk around" lens that is great too but for family portraits, etc. the 50 mm is awesome.



I certainly agree to invest in a prime lens. Even when just "starting out" and training on the camera. The difference will amaze and every lens is a "re-training", IMO. I've had to learn each of mine individually. Lens factor is even more important than body of camera.
