M + 22/2 does Christmas lights - portrait
2

My wife and I took our daughter to see some Christmas lights tonight and I took the M along to see how/what it could do.  For the most part, I was pleasantly surprised!  Although, I've figured out that flashing lights WILL throw off the AF causing endless hunting.  After a while, I gave up and just started trying to MF.

Anyway, here's one from about 10 minutes after the sun went down where there was still just a little bit of ambient light left - just enough to focus.  She wore this expression for about 10 minutes while everything "sunk in".  Thought it was pretty cool
