How weird, my original post was deleted some how, so I’m having to recreate it. So, let me reintroduce you to Al, one of the Santa Fe locals that was a subject of my 24f1.4 quest. The 24f1.4 is a spectacular lens! Look at Al’s eyes, look at the stubble on his chin, damn is it sharp! The background, just 18″ behind him though is out of flash. WOW!

Then there’s Steve. This is a character Joe found in the coffeeshop. I really nice guy, full of stories and in the gorgeous, soft window light, Steve had to be photographed. It was a busy shop, full of folks, full of visual distractions. The 24f1.4 was the perfect tool! At f1.4, the results are stunning! I will be gushing about this lens all week as I explore it more and more. Seriously, OMG!
