    What should I lust after? I feel morally obligated to put the money into the economy, LOL! :smile::smile::smile:

    We bought a refrigerator with our $1200 - nothing sexy, but the ice was starting to melt in the old one.
     
  3. A 50/1.8

    Hi Carole,

    A 50/1.8 considering you don't have a prime in your equipment list, as such a prime lens and a nice dinner out on the town with a night at the theater.

    Or a 50/1.4 and a dinner at home. :smile:

    Actually, I ordered the 50/1.8 from B&H last week and it will arrive here on July 9th :)) My very first SLR was a Yashica TL Electro (which I still have) and it came with a 50/1.9. I always liked that lens. You know what's funny? My TL Electro with the 1.9 lens was $150 brand new. Of course that was back when I was in college in the 1970's :)))

    I'm kind of thinking I'd like a macro lens...just not sure what I want.
