Nicely done Joey! and I am liking it a lot, the depth of field is nice and the color and sharpness it produces are great, that being said though manual focus is a pain in the A**!

I would think so we are all spoiled with our af. Are you going to chip it?

Solid Emow, jealous of that 50L

I actually already did chip it Joey, It was worth it to get 35mm f/1.4 in the exif, that being said it back focuses like crazy on my 50D, so even using AF confirm, the chip MA'd to 15 and the MA in body on my 50D all the way to front focus it still backfocuses. So because of that I use live view for any legitimate shoots. It's annoying for many reasons, but the quality of the images that it produces is worth it until i can afford the 35L

Thanks Luke. You've been grinding out some great work recently, definitely motivating me to shoot more after finals are over. I adore the 50L. I tend to stay with only one lens/body if that puts my vote in perspective. Super versatile on FF, IQ is fantastic, and as someone once put it, 'it paints pictures'. I recently paired it with a 1Ds2 was has given me incredible results so far. I think you'd use it endlessly with with your style of pre and post!

For sure man, yeah honestly 35mm is my favorite focal length on my crop, so I think once i do make that step to full frame (which will probably be a while as I don't anticipate getting an extra 2k or more any time soon...) the 50 1.4 or if i'm lucky enough 1.2L will be slapped on my body at all times haha

Yeah a 35mm makes much more sense on a crop, the 50 was always a bit narrow on a 1.3 crop. I hear ya there, I can't afford to stack gear right now so I just stick with a reliable combo.

Finally got my first fashion shoot(Which was much fun!), and luckily I got to shoot it with my newly acquired 5D3. LOVE IT.
Shot using 5D3/50L @ f/1.2
