OK, I'm finally getting a chance to post the photos I took almost two weeks ago when I used my 50mm exclusively for the week. I know I say this about almost every lens, but I really love this lens. I've had every 50mm that Canon makes. The 1.8 was good and super inexpensive. A little noisy and plasticky, yes, but still a good little lens. The 1.4 made me want to hurl myself out a window. Maybe that's a little dramatic. But I hated it. Mine was very, very bad and was plagued by autofocus issues. It was constantly at Canon. I didn't use a 50mm lens for almost a year because I was afraid to trust it. Finally I decided to get the 1.2. I am pretty sure that what happened when I first used it was similar to what happened when Clark Griswold FINALLY got his Christmas lights to work. It is beautiful. The photos that come from it are beautiful. I don't use it much for portraits but it's great for documenting the world around me (thus the sort of week-in-my-life feel of the photos). My favorite enthusiastic assistant was spared from being featured this time because I took pity on him. Also missing is one of my usual favorite subjects, Reina the cat. She's been missing for over a month but you can see that my week included putting up more missing posters for her. I had to include a self portrait of me looking amazing because even when I'm tired (way tired) I practice stuff on myself like...lighting with the light from your front door! Also featured is my fantastic friend Lea who is not fazed by my camera since I followed her around with one like a stalker in Barbados. Have a look below to see the photos from my week.
