F- 50mm 1.7 Wide Open
Posted By: bwield, 07-07-2009, 04:40 PM

The lens has been sitting on my self / in my bag for over 3 months now with no use.
No really sure why, but today I decided to throw it on and run outside for 10 minutes.

I remember that I am always surprised how usable 1.7 can be with this lens, not only to get a soft effect, but also relatively sharp (see pic 3).
I vow to use it more from now on!

Nicely done...I like this lens a lot and should also use mine more often than I do ;-)
