Hello friends!

I'm trying to expand more into the field of being a professional photographer and it's a rough road. I'm very glad that I read that Sony is finally releasing a budget lens for my camera. Before I didn't expect ever to save up from me and my wife's income for one of the Sony FE glass, but now they're releasing a 50mm, a "nifty fifty" lens for 250$ and I believe this could be my first big step into the professional field. It would be perfect for doing not only art, but weddings, events, birthdays and all kinds of shoots.

You can see the clear blurring effect and lack of sharpness with my current 16mm APS-C lens, even on a heavily cropped photo

Anyway, if you want to help me in getting this lens, it would be a huge help. I'm having my relatives send me 2 old M42-mount Soviet lenses from back home so I can have something to use, but I really would need a lens capable of auto-focus and something's that's full-frame. So if you have the means to, please click the link below and donate. Anything would help! I hope I'm able to gather the funds to get it by May for my birthday, because I might have a possible trip I can hitch a ride along with my wife's professor and his class.

Here is the lens that I need: Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Lens (248$ + 50$ shipping & taxes).
