This is a paperweight that keeps my books from flying away. :)
I couldn’t help myself last week when the canon 50mm 1.4 went on sale. I had been looking at that lens for nearly two years and wondering if it was worth the purchase. I had settled for the $80 50mm 1.8 which served me well but with its cheap construction and tendency to have its blades get stuck, I wound up replacing it four times. The 1.4 usually sold for $400 or so and when I saw that it had dropped to $299 on Amazon, I couldn’t help myself. It was a total impulse purchase. I consoled myself by paying for $250 of it with my credit card rewards I’d been saving making the effective price $50. The Indian in me could be happy with that.
The bokeh on this thing is amazing. AMAZING. I am so in love with it. I also know its a great lens to have on a canon full frame for whenever I make that jump.
