Finally got a use for the 50mm f/1.4 Lens!!

I was actually feeling pretty bad for buying two A 50mm f/2 & f/1.4 but never had the chance to really use them... Instead I am always using the Vivitar28 or the FA35 (love of my life!) and never found the application for the 50mm.... TILL NOW!!


Working on studio portraits and was finally able to grasp all the raves about 50mm lenses!! I even feel like it is a little too short now (how ironic) and sometimes I wish it were a bit longer!


Anyhow, here are some pictures with this babe!













And because I wanted to control the black background, I had to pre-focus, turn off the ambient lights and click away... so focus is slightly off.. but when it is spot on... GEEEEEZZZ... it's SHARP!!!

yeah, in this case was more like an introduction to the world of "50mm" than the world of fast primes...

I have other primes, but wider. I had never found the use for 50mm before though...
