NEW TOY! 28mm f/1.8 USM!

There was this epic ice storm that hit Toronto on Saturday evening and then the power went out in the suburbs. So I obviously trekked downtown for WiFi, electricity, and to have a meeting for an upcoming project (in that order #priorities). But I was mostly excited about picking up a 28mm f/1.8 USM!!!!

Since I upgraded to a full-frame camera in July, I’ve been looking to get a new wide angle lens and I personally prefer primes. My friend Aaron recommended the 28mm f/1.8 and I found a pretty good deal on Craigslist after two weeks of obsessively refreshing the site whenever I’m procrastinating on my papers. I’m still getting used to the to the focal length but I could definitely get used to that USM! I’ve been shooting on the 50mm f/1.8 almost exclusively since I got the 6D—I haven’t shot on the 85mm f/1.8 USM much—and that focusing on the nifty fifty is starting to frustrate me more than usual, maybe it’s time to get the 50mm f/1.4 USM before Canon discontinues the lens

I may or may not have strategically planned to pick up the lens during the meeting because that means I have subjects for a LENS TEST because I’m exactly that kind of person.






Happy Holidays and stay warm!
