So I made it out with the group today, just for the afternoon portion of the walk. Man was it cold. Didn’t get many decent shots but I had fun with the old gang. When we stopped for dinner b=my buddy let me try out his Canon 100mm f2.8 portrait/macro lens on my camera and my other buddy stood in as my subject. The quality of the image is much better than I get from my 24-105 F4 zoom lens, but that’s no surprise. Prime lenses (lenses with a fixed focal length) tend to be far superior optically speaking. I have a 50mm f1.4 prime but I never take the thing out. I really need to use it more. It’s not as great for portraiture as this 100mm lens but it’s still pretty sweet. I took this shot wide open at f2.8 to check out the bokeh (out of focus background area). It’s very nice and soft and pleasing to the eye. Hope you like it.
