"I shot my eye out!" Well, not exactly...
My new lens came today. I ordered the Canon 50mm 1.4EF
And after using it... I felt dissppointed.
I thought the lens was going to be faster at in low lights. I can't see that it is any faster than my kit lens. The ISO has to be turned way up in AV mode. I was taking practice shots indoors with a flash, but that was also part of the purpose of investing in a new lens. The focus is slow.
Plus, the color is just boring. They are not as bright. And for the first time ever I could see noise on my lcd screen. Normally, it can't be detected in pictures until I upload them.
Am I being impatient? Is there a learning curve associated with using a prime lens?
My expectations were high. I love the ability to open the aperature soo wide, but I could have settled for the 1.8.
I just reviewed the pictures again. The pictures taken with the green box are decent, but I don't want to use the green box. I have been shooting in manuel settings for the last six months or longer, but I don't know everything.
oh, this let down...
