so i finally did it.

i bought the canon 35mm f/1.4L

i love it. its so crisp and sharp. i had to micro-calibrate it to my 7d by +15 and now its so on spot.

i didnt have much chance yesterday to use it to its potential (bc, to be honest, its for my newborn shoots, mainly :) and while it will be perfect for places my 85mm cant fit, my newborns should be so awesome with this piece of glass. hopefully lol)

but i did shoot some candids and snapshots of the kids. to see how in, totally normal conditions if it differs that much from the sigma 30mm 1.4 i had (and sold. yippee!!)

all of these in the gameroom are basically straight out of the camera. being shot in RAW, i fixed the white balance but thats it.

anyway, i love it. maybe i can try something better today. :)


  1. Great shots! But, regardless of the lens, your shots are always great and spot on. I will admit, though, it's super fun and crazy exciting to get new toys. Congrats on the new addition!

  2. I bet you are SUPER excited! It's always fun to get a new lens. I bet you'll love using this one w/ your newborns. I'm a Nikon girl, but my 35 is what primarily stays on my camera. It's so good for capturing our everyday indoors. I'm glad you mentioned about micro calibrating. I need to quit being lazy and figure out how to do that for my lenses!
