I use a 35mm f1.8 on my nikon, as john said it is ideal for trophy shots or self taking 50mm is a bit to narrow.
Took a few more bug shots yesterday

Your welcome Andy. Most Canon cameras when brought with a lens attached it is usually their EFS 18-55mm zoom lens.
Itís a 3.5-5.6 which is not that fast but it has image stabilization and focus down to a nice close distance.
The 18mm end is a lot wider than the 35mm lens and 55mm makes a good semi portrait lens. People call it a kit lens but it is a lot better than that

The 35mm wide angle would be IMO a better bet as on occasions you can be stuck for space and you donít want to mess about moving backwards with a fish to get everything in. It also gives you a crop option should you need it.

On the portrait front the most recommended lens is a 70mm or 90mm which gives you the option of moving back from the object.
A short zoom lens would be needed to hit all these applications from wide angle to telephoto

A fast lens is also better in low light, which would cost more but probably worth it in the long run.
On the landscape front a medium wide angle lens such as the 35mm is what you most often see recommended.
On the cash front you could get a good second party lens for less than a Canon. Do some searches on the web and have a look at some independent reviews.

Hi all, what do you guys use for your trophy shots? I have been looking at canon 50mm 1.8 or the 35mm, im inclined on the 50mm due to the price but dont want it breaking after a few mobths use. I would also like to use it for potraits and scenic shots, I have a canon 600D if that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance, Andrew

I donít think that the camera is `not up to it` as the capture below was taken on a 450D which is older than the model you own.
The lens and accessories cost around £30 and is the outfit I was advising a previous poster about ie a reversed Canon FD lens, 50mm f1.8 with extension tubes.
I know we have had a number of PMís in respect of the problem you outlined and it could be worthwhile getting the camera checked out

Thanks all on black, using nikon d5000+ nikkor 105 f/2.8 also used sb400 flash with diffuser.
I have also done a little enhancing with Aperture though only a little sharpness and noise reduction.
camera setting were iso 400 f/20 1/160sec manual with comp flash .
Should be upgrading my d5000 for a d5100 next week and looking forward to better handling of high iso plus more pixs should help the crop factor

Unbelievable detail dave, really impressed. What camera are you using?

Can't work out why, no matter how well focused my shots are, with whatever setting, I still end up with slightly soft looking pictures.

Maybe the camera isn't good enough? Running a Canon Eos 500d..
