I know its just my foot but its my only subject for the moment.

I bought this trip to Europe priced lens for my birthday (why do you have to buy your own presents when you get older?). It arrived today which is exciting as I have a present to open.

The build quality is amazing and the bokeh is superb. I know its just my foot which needs some sun but the sharpness is incredible. Even the lens hood is improved. A bit heavier than I expected.

I guess you get what you pay for but this is an amazing prime. Can't wait to shoot someone elses foot. LOL

More to tell and show as I have some time to play.

Some toe nail polish would enhance the image a bit, adding some color to the scenery.

But I would have had to shave my legs too.

Every photo should have a Point of Interest. So it's your foot, that's nice but we need something to focus on. Next time...include Toe Jam!

I think a bastard amber gel would work wonders.

What was in the background and how far away was it? Great Bokeh with it.

My sides hurt from laughing. Very funny guys.

The background was the room with natural light. My point about the lens is the bokeh is extraordinary. The one criticism I have read about the lens is its difficulty to get the focus you want and that seems to be true. Hopefully this week I will get to shoot a face (and foot) prettier than mine. No wait. Way prettier than mine. I actually bought it to shoot a wedding next month but realize I will need to be careful with the focus or else make sure I have plenty of coverage on each shot.

Now to try it with my new AB ringlight.
