If you recently bought or were gifted a new digital SLR but aren't quite sure where to start with your inevitable lens collection, Future Shop has put the popular Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II Lens on sale for $89.99 until January 3. The 18-55mm IS kit lens that comes with most consumer bodies is a decent starter lens but the "Nifty-Fifty" is a solid portrait lens that can help introduce new users to the world of prime glass.
For those of you new to the photography scene, this lens does not zoom. It is a fixed 50mm focal length but the aperture is much, much more versatile and will perform better in low light conditions when compared to kit lenses.
Normally, the lens will cost you around $120 and is a pretty hot seller when it goes on sale for $99. At $89, we don't have to tell you that stock is going to move even faster.
