The 50 is dead. Long live the 50.
I’m not dead either, if anyone out there is wondering . . . .
It’s been a crazy busy few weeks…er… couple months…um .. anyway. My beloved 50mm 1.8 has passed away as a usable lens (it is a tragedy which saddens me greatly), but a 50 1.4 has been acquired (reluctantly for cost). On the up side, it’s also quite loved, faster, sharper, quieter and overall it seems like a much better fit for me to use as a primary lens. I also managed to pickup a 2x extender, which furthers the use of this new 50. So, without further ado, here is the first image off the 50 1.4 (that I care to post).
