So I FINALLY found the lens that I’ve been trying to find for weeks… the Canon 50mm 1.2. Those of you familiar with photography know how frickin’ expensive this lens is. And Canon has been offering a $100 rebate on it so it is sold out everywhere. I tracked down what has to be the last one – I pick it up tomorrow and I’m so excited.
Speaking of expensive… am I the only momtog out there that is floored by how much everything costs in the world of photography? My husband, God bless him, is being SO supportive, but I’m thinking that it’s only a matter of time before I’ll have to cough up a kidney or some stem cells. Because after this lens, the Mac, the actions, the ‘other’ lens… holy crap, it doesn’t end. I know, I know…. it’s been said that you can’t put a price on your dreams, but right about now I know my husband is wishing that my dreams existed more along the lines of making sock puppets or lawn bowling with the local seniors group.
So anyone out there with the 50 1.2, feel free to post and tell me how absolutely FABULOUS the lens is, how you can’t believe you ever lived without it, how it transformed your photography, etc. etc. Then maybe I can get away with only donating a couple of pints of plasma… 🙂
I hear ya. I am coveting this same lens right now 😛 You’ll have to let us know if it was worth the price you paid. I haven’t heard a bad thing about it, but my poor husband…the list of things I want keeps getting longer and more expensive!
I know… the lens IS awesome. The pictures of Kylie were taken with my 50 1.8 and I think they turned out pretty great. But every time I take out that 50 1.2 I’m amazed at how tack-sharp it is. I’ll definitely keep you posted on what my ultimate verdict is!
