Pro’s Killer kit #01 Nikon 50mm f/1.4G
Steve says… One of my favourite lenses. It’s cheap for a lens this fast (£279, $429), it’s light and it delivers wonderful shallow depth of field effects. You can use it indoors and out, and it’s not just about the great bokeh you get when you use it wide open, it’s the discipline it brings. You need to move in and around your subject to find the best angles – you see much more than if you just stand in one place and use a zoom. The wide maximum aperture makes it great for indoor available light portraits, too.
