the 50mm/1.8 lens

I shoot on a Nikon D80 with a 50mm/1.8 prime lens. There are two reasons for this:
  1. I don't know how to use a flash, so I need a lens with a wide aperture in low light situations.
  2. I learned photography with a 50mm lens, and never learned how to use zoom lenses.
But apparently, now I can pretend that there are other, purposeful reasons for shooting with my current system.
