Some more shots from around the house. I'm still getting used to the shallow depth of field that I can achieve with this, though I'm getting better at judging what aperture I need to use to keep most of the subject in focus. I've found that ƒ/2.0 with One Shot mode seems to work well for stationary subjects. I'm still working on using ƒ/2.8 and Servo for moving subjects.


Here are a few Fedoras I've bought over the past couple of days. I have to admit that I'm rather fond of Fedoras. They're stylish as well as versatile when it comes to being able to wear them with different outfits. The hat in the third picture is black with white stripes, which is why I made the image black and white. The bedding is a bright red, which was very distracting and kept drawing my eye away from the focal point, which was the hat.

I love this shot. And It is indeed a fun lens. It's been glued to my camera ever since I got it last week. :)

@ Niwooe. Love this - high key works. Some may think otherwise, but I think the crop works very well - suggests movement from the model.

Well my lens finally came in from Adorama today and I couldn't be more happy with it. This is the first lens I've owned outside of the kit lens that came with my camera. It's great to finally be able to experiment with DoF in my photos to a more serious degree.

Looking forward to posting more pics from this lens, I'm sure it won't be leaving my camera for quite some time!
