New lens

After borrowing several of scsi's lenses for awhile and reading the EOS beginner's guide dozens of times, I finally bought two lenses of my own over the weekend.

The first, the 50mm f/1.8 II, arrived via Amazon today. It's got a noisy motor and doesn't focus that fast (I guess this is what they call "poor build quality" :)), but at $56, who cares....

Some pics,

Nothing amazing, just playing. I was shooting at 1.8 to see how shallow a depth of field it'd be, and how clear I could get crazy Major in relatively low light. The first couple shots aren't that great as it took me a few shots to figure out the dioptric adjustment dial thing was off.... and like, a lot. So I was fighting with focus a lot more than I needed to. (uh, how long has it been off? couldn't have been too long... )

The best shot I can't include because dina banned it: she had a face mask on and was running from the room as I took it. In low-light and her running away I thought, "no fucking way", but it turned out. She did look pretty scary. Better left unpublished. :-)
