Look how creamy this bokeh is. And this is shot wide open at 2.0. LOOK HOW SHARP!

I can't get over how amazing that lens is for the price. It's one of the cheapest L lenses but it's amazing! A friend of mine recently got it and I just love the bokeh!

$370 is if I order it online. A lot of other places where I can walk in and get one it's like $450. Maybe they are more expensive here (i'm in Aus). I really want to get one today so I can start using it. I'm too impatient to wait for one to be shipped lol. I'm going to try looking for a used one before I head to the shops ... see if I can find a cheap one.

Quoting ℐαzmчn:" Also just so you know, the 5D models only have 1 auto mode and that's full auto. No creative auto or ... [snip!] ... your camera. But for a first lens I agree you can't really go wrong with the 50mm and I'd definitely get the 1.4 over the 1.8!"




Oh I know. I'm definitely going to learn to use manual properly. I think I was confusing full auto with auto focus on the lens.

Yeah that's probably why it's more expensive for you then. I doubt any of us realized you're in Australia lol.

Yeah I should have said so since it's not the location on my profile lol. I ended up getting one from a shop today $450 was the cheapest we could find.

Just curious, but has anyone ever thought to put a cute quote on a photograph or does that just sound tacky?

I don't mind it, if the quote really matches the portrait. I follow a few photographers on facebook who do a quoted portrait for each session.

I thought about doing, "tiny shining star...I know who you are"... on a photo before. It's a quote from a song, but I thought the same thing you did-that people would find it tacky.
