Nikon updated the old 50 f1.4 lens about two years ago. I tried it out and thought, hmmm. I would like to have that piece of glass in my arsenal… Well, I finally upgraded to this KILLER piece of glass and am VERY happy I did. Right off the bat I could tell how much faster it focused and how sharp it was. The Shallow depth of field when stopped to 1.4 is beautiful. The colors and contrast that come out are perfect. I have a love affair with PRIME lenses, because the colors, contrast and saturation straight out of the camera are usually spot on. This gives me more free time later 😉
If you have not tried this lens or want to get one, I encourage you to save up and get one. It is very inexpensive for the quality it produces. < $500. Here are a few of Chyler (keeping my promise to photograph her more!)
HI DAD! LOL this one cracks me up.
