50mm 1.4G

Better bokeh?

I have been practicing with the 50mm. Keith suggested using an aperture of f2 with this lens and I think it has helped.

Ok, wow, this is the first time I really noticed the importance of color management. In IE 8 it is a lot more gray than in Safari and the red is not nearly as bright in IE.

Very nice Chris.  I love how the sharpness of this lens at f2 focuses the viewers attention on the subjects eyes, and the background just melts away.

Another very nice portrait Chris.  Don't you love how you can control the depth of field with this lens?
