Yeah, I know. I said I was over taking photos of myself but this one isn't of me, it's of my camera and my new lens! I am lovin hard on my new top secret lens! I just brought it out into the daylight for the first time yesterday. I call it my "top secret" lens because I snuck around to buy it. Granted, I used some Birthday money but I didn't tell my husband I was getting it which is shaddy. I finally fessed up after the fact and he didn't seem to care but still, shaddy.
Anyhoo, the damage is done so I can enjoy my new 50 mm lens! I took a photo of it to show the gigantic shutter openeing. It's crazy. I tested it yesterday in low light situations and where my other lens needed a flash, this lens did not. It's a portrait lens so I'll see what kind of trouble I can get into with it.
I've wanted this lens for a while and just never got it. I thought about the 1.4 but decided that I could live without it for now. This one was so much cheaper and on sale at that. I know it's more than I need for what I'm doing.
