M135 f3.5. This is the same image as above, processed from raw. I still haven't developed a workflow for raw files.

Well, after seeing so many great images coming from the M50's, I decided to fork over all of $28.55 to get a M50 1.7 on ebay. Went to see the grand kids to try some available light shots in an apartment with out the best window set up. These are all at F2 with little to no cropping. Best 28 bucks I ever spent

Now you see what all the fuss is about . Truly a killer lens for the $ - great portraits!

These would be great images with any lens. The last one is especially beautiful. The M50 1.7 did a great job, too.

I think your images actually motivated me to buy one immediately. I used to have one, but it was stolen.

Thanks guys, this is the first lens I have had that is this sharp with this quality of bokeh @F2, giving me the ability to shoot in a low light relaxed situation. Of course I had to shoot in the 1/60 to 1/100 speed range.

By the way, with some additional processing, the skin tones in these images would leap off of the screen.

What would you have in mind? I did some work in PS on these to get them where they are, but am always open to new ideas. PM me with any ideas if you like, that would be cool.
