I had been on the FedEx site all week watching and waiting (impatiently of course) for my two new lenses to show up in Perth and they’re finally here!!!
I am now the proud owner of a new prime lens, the Canon 85mm 1.8 and the Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro IS USM. VERY EXCITING STUFF. I used the 85mm at Mike and Bernie’s wedding last week with nice results- it was a great feeling to finally do away with my kit lens, and even though it’s not the 1.2, the 1.8 seems to get the job done, and man is that auto-focussing fast! Probably the only drawback to shooting wide open in full sunlight was the portraits tended to look a little over- sharpened and needed softening- i’ll definitely remember that next time while post processing!
So stay posted for some Macro shots… the pets will probably be the targets here, but luckily the choices are infinite! Snakes, fish, dogs… it’s just a matter of choosing which to model first!
