Monday I’ve ordered a Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM lens at a norwegian webshop, and yesterday I picked it up at my local post office. Even though I haven’t tested it much, the results looks promising, and I’m looking forward testing it. For once it’s actually announced great weather this weekend.
I’ve did a few test shot with myself as a subject yesterday. But since my camera, a Canon 350D, has a cropping factor of 1.6, the 50mm equals a 80mm, and then it’s real hard to hold the camera and aim at oneself. The closes focusing distance is 0.45m, and of course I wantet to get more than just my nose in the picture.
Yes, that’s me.
I stopped shaving when my vacation started and.. well.. you can guess the rest.
I’ll try to publish some more photos on Flickr at the end of the weekend.
