It is still raining here on Midsummers Day, what a summer this is turning out to be! Good news is my birthday/wedding anniversary pressie arrived courtesy of Amazonia; a new prime 85mm 1.8 USM for my Canon 5D2. Here’s the first image I took with this sweetest of lenses, of my hubby who gifted it, taken by natural window side light. For a change from LR4 I converted it to mono via CS4 Adobe RAW as a 16 bit Tiff and was quite pleased with the effect. I am well pleased with this 85mm prime, I nearly got myself a nifty 50 but portrait work which I tend to do more of this is just perfect and not such an extortionate outlay as an L lens, it will do me very nicely.
