Forget the Nifty Fifty: Two Must-Have Lenses

I have always been a fan of the prime lenses, and the 85mm lens is one of my favorites. The Nikkor 85 1.4 lens is  probably one of the best portrait lens ever. Recently, I have taken to the Nikkor 58mm 1.4 lens  and this week I gave both quite a workout.

There is just something about prime lenses that I have always loved over zoom lenses. There are amazing zoom lenses, but every photographer needs a few great primes as well. The nifty-fifty lens is a staple for many photographers as a standard lens, but the Nikkor 58mm is quite special in a different way. That little extra makes a big difference in seperating you from the pack.
