Following in Jonathan's footsteps I used the M50/1.4 to take a photo of this crocus. Taken at f/2.8 if I remember correctly.

I grabbed a few minutes yesterday to shoot the cherry blossoms in the park next to home and used the M 85mm f/2 among a couple of other lenses. All taken at f/3.5, which I find to be the sweet spot for a sharp subject and nice defocused background.

Very nice! The park here still has thick white grass covers on.

I suppose.... But at least I'm not rubbing it in by posting photos of lovely emerging crocus or blooming trees.

Sorry for that. I have some foggy cold morning images that need a bit of processing to bring out that cold dreary feeling to perhaps compensate.

There's a park close to my office that has a great number of these trees and I'm sure it's looking gorgeous right now. Most years I take a couple of hours from one afternoon and spend some time there but not this year. I haven't been to the office in a year or more and the Mrs would not be happy if I took a couple of hours off to go and take some photos rather than to hep her with our youngest.

One from the M50/1.4 that I'm Singling in March.



Mucking about to see how little light I can get by with at F1.4 ...well into the blue hour.
