Sample Shots with the 50mm f/1.4G

As I stated in my previous post, I am the proud owner of a 50mm f/1.4G. In my opinion, this lens seems much better than the previous D version. I had a chance this weekend to take a few quick shots to explore the capabilities of this new prime lens. Here's what I came up with.

As you can see the lens delivers great contrast and clarity.


I was also impressed by the color and the smooth bokeh...

The sharpness is top-notch, especially when stopped down to f/4 - f/5.6

The resolution has been greatly improved when shooting wide open.

I LOVE the bokeh from this lens. Smooth and buttery :)
