    I take that back..

    The two that I own are 18-55 f/3.5 (kit) and 55-200 f/4 VR. A friend of mine is letting me borrow a 50mm 1.8 and a 135mm f/2. They're both older than myself and I'm still learning how to use them. The camera can't meter with them and I suck at focusing with them.

    you dont need a 1,000 dollar lens to create a picture that is as boring as this one

    I doubt he really gave a shit when snapping the photo to show the many "pros" of AP the bokeh of the new lens he recieved.

    I'm a bit reluctant to post these, since it has a very "popish" vibe to it, however it shows the creaminess that the lens produces. believe or not, this set has minimal PPing. I just used a longer shutter speed to overexpose them a bit.

    There's a lot of CA around the highlights though, but ppl say its pretty common when you shot wide open on this lens. It's also extremely difficult to control the focus point with this lens, you have to be very precise.

    Shot wide open at 1/30 sec, iso 100
