New Lens

July 3, 2009

We have been wanting this lens for some time now and finaly purchased it last week before our weekend of weddings. For the photographers out there this is a f 1.2 L series lens ( I know you can see that on the box!) which copes brilliantly in very low light conditions. Also, in non technical terms, it creates a dreamy haze around the edge of the image which reduces distraction from the subject. I, Emma, used it for a lot of the day during both weddings at the weekend and loved it. I was amazed that Ian didn’t put up a fight over who’s kit it was starting off in! I didn’t hog it though, Ian had his opportunity later in the day.

The depth of focus using f1.2 is very, very shallow. Here are a few test shots.

Ian started with the nextdoor neighbours tropical plant. Then we headed to the fields!
