7D & 50mm 1.4 - A few from the first days shooting.
11 months ago

I took delivery of this lens a few weeks back, so decided to have a play around. I took it along to one of my cousins gigs, in a fairly rowdy pub in Essex!

I consider it a safe place to take a bag containing a couple of grands worth of kit though. Band photographers are protected......especially if they're friends of the band!

As for the 7D/50 1.4 combo. Tricky, very tricky. Low light focusing with the 7D can be very hit or miss, and is only amplified when shooting at f1.4-f2. A small amount of movement from the subject (an inch or less) and the focus is gone. Not easy when the band you're photographing are a fairly animated ska outfit!

All-in-all, the 50 1.4 is a great lens for the collection. One which I can't wait to attach to my (hopefully) upcoming 5D3.
