Today this little beauty came in the mail for me. A birthday gift that I took out a few days early, I needed it for some projects now so thought I could take it early just this once...
So what do you do when you get a new lense? Well, put it on your camera and run around testing it on whatever you can find. As said, as done.
Sunflower We got some nice sunflowers in the backyard that just started blooming. I love the smooth bokeh this lens gives. 1/1000 sec at f /3.2 , ISO 100.
I also had to try it on something portrait like...had no people around, so then the house animals have to be models.
Grand old lady
My grand old lady, turning 14 in September this year. 1/320 sec at f / 2.8, ISO 100.
I wasn't too far away from the wall behind the dog, but it still blurs it out nicely.
Red roses In this picture the flower is pretty much hanging on the wall. 1/320 sec at f / 1.8, ISO 100
The last picture was actually the first picture I took. This one was taken inside in a rather dark room.
Bump the cat The house cat, sending evil looks to the new puppy in the house that haven't learned to respect the cat yet... 1/100 sec at f / 1.8, ISO 500
I have to say I'm very pleased with the new lense after a few test shots, and I look forward to have some fun with this one. It's always fun with new equipment, especially when they give good results instantly. Can't wait to get to know this lens better and learn how to get the best out of it. If you are considering buying this one, I'll say go ahead and do it! It's definitely worth the money!
