So, as promised, I spent the weekend making portraits with a flashlight. And by flashlight, I mean car headlights. Those things have a lot more juice than a mag-light. I was shooting with the Hasselblad, but I took a break here to play with my friend Darl’s new 40D. I couldn’t for the life of me get the 50mm f/1.8 lens to focus. On anything. Either my brain was broken (quite possible) or that thing is worth its $89.95 price tag.
So here’s the question of the morning, for all you camera nerds who know way more about lenses than I do. Canon’s 50mm f/1.2 lens; Is it worth it?
50mm f/1.8= $89.95
50mm f/1.4= $325.00
50mm f/1.2= $1400.00
