Woo-hoo!  It came today!  I received my Christmas gift from hubby about a month early.  It is a 50mm f1.8 prime lens:

After I purchased my Rebel this summer, I spoke with several photographer/bloggers about what particular lens would you recommend for someone like me?  Many of them suggested a 50 mm prime lens.  Scott Thomas directed me to an article he wrote about the reasons every photographer should have this lens.  I immediately put in on my “wish list.”  We have a special family event coming up in a few weeks, and I thought it would be nice to have it for then, so I had a little chat with hubby and VOILA!  Merry Christmas to me!  Here are my first shots with the new lens, SOOC.  All were taken inside with no flash, hand-held:

Thanks 50 mm!  I’m looking forward to getting to know you!
