new toy

I drove to North Sydney to grab some lunch wtih hubbie today. We bought two boxes of pasta, a coke zero and for dessert we (well me) bought a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8.

My new toy:

I think a lot of people have the 70-200 f/2.8 but unless Canon is going to donate me one, I really cannot afford that right now and so this is my best bet. It’s affordable (ahem coughs hubbie), has max aperture of f/1.8 which is a HUGE difference compared to the f/4 and very sharp. It won’t reach as far as the 200mm but well I still got my legs. The whole world says it’s a great portrait lens so I shall test that out tomorrow.

I am feeling a little guilty about this so I really shouldn’t call it a new toy. It’s more like a new necessity =)
