30.07.2003 Got a 50mm f/1.8 lens

I managed to get hold of a second hand Canon 50mm f/1.8 MK I lens, which is a lot better than the plastic toy Canon replaced it with many years ago. Someone had an advertisement for it on the web and after I contacted the seller, it turned out he almost literally lives around the corner.

I love the sharpness and bokeh of this lens, and the fact that you can get a very shallow Depth of Field. Here’s a quick portrait of me…

Hmmmmmm, shallow DoF
