after talking about it for over 3 months, i finally pulled the trigger got a new lens for my camera. it's been a while since i started talking about it, that it's become known as "it" around here (the boys would constantly ask me, "did you buy IT yet?")
it rocks. it gives me more flexibility than my 50mm (even though i end up shooting with a focal length of about 50mm anyway), it's amazingly sharp, and the color is awesome. it's also fast, with an aperture of 2.8, which is awesome for its price!
we went out after i got the lens, so i got to play with it today. here are a bunch of test shots. most of them have no editing on them (except resizing and watermarking), which is really liberating...a few have a little bit of tinkering, though.
and these are from yesterday (with my old lens). it was our buddy allen's birthday, so we celebrated. lots of funny moments. hehe.
really excited because at this time next week, i'll be up in norcal, pigging out and not melting in really crappy weather. can't wait! :)
have a good one :)
