Great prime lense
on 27 June 2017
After years of disappointing point & click and smart photography I bought a DSLR. A prime lens was always going to be one of my first accessories as I knew that I wanted to take better family portrait shots and that the stock lens was not going to give me the background blur I was looking for due to my lack of experience. I experimented for a week before ordering this lens just to make sure this was the right decision which really allowed me to appreciate this choice.
I did look at the "Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens" which seems like a great lens but knowing what I wanted to achieve made me feel comfortable going for the lower aperture of f/1.4 this lens offers.
I am an amateur photographer but have found the lens to be very good at what I need and I'm looking forward to taking more portrait photographs.
