cool new lens!

A lens that I've had my sights on for a while is the Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens... and I recently purchased one! It's such a nice lens for portraits and low light conditions, because it is 2 1/3 stops brighter than all my other f/2.8 lenses. When you shoot it wide open, the background has this unique out of focus look that you cannot get with most other lenses. Anyway, it's just a super cool fun lens for a photo nerd like me.

We went to this thing last night and even though it was cold and rainy I still wanted play around with the new lens. Here are a few of the photos, they aren't great but I was just having fun taking photos in such dark situations without a tripod...

Yes... Uncle Jimmy has made another appearance on the blog!
