85 1.8 magic
Jul 15, 2008

I've started shooting mostly with primes and I really like the results. I have the 85 1.8 and the 135L 2.0 300L 4.0 and use a 40D. (35L next)

These lens are just fun to use, period. They take a little getting used to but once you learn to use them your photo's seem to stand out from the rest.

My daughter just gave birth to her second child and it was so much fun shooting them with no flash. I cranked up the ISO to 800 to 1250 and shot most of these @ 2.2 to 2.5. I had the camera is H speed mode and shot allot of burst. The 85 is a little long indoors on the crop camera so you have to stand back a little.

Here's a few shots. Take the plunge you won't have any regrets.

And one from my grandsons 2cd birthday party.
