After lots of consideration, I ordered a new lens for my camera today – the Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.4d which I think will be a ton of fun… it’s a super-fast lens with amazing optics. This means it’ll do better in low light, offer a couple extra stops of aperture (which among other things offers some extremely shallow depth of field, which for some reason I really groove on). I had considered the 1.8 but decided pay the extra to get the 1.4. Also the 50mm is supposedly closest to the human eye actually sees the world (correct me if i’m wrong, but it seems right.)
I will (obviously) post photos when I get it.
