While hanging out at The Richmond Arms I popped off a few flashless shots of my friend Owen Finn.

The first one with the 20mm 1.8

The second with the 50mm 1.4

The 50mm is still the best lens I’ve got for this type of thing and I am super happy with it. It’s is so sharp and bright I always come back to it.

I love the potential of shots using a wide angle, though. That is why I have begun to investigate the new Sigma 30mm 1.4 as possible addition to the collection. From what I have read, it’s as sharp as the 50mm I am using now.

It’s around $400 so it’s far more affordable and in reach than the Sony SAL-135F18Z 135mm f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Sonnar T that I have been lusting after which runs $1400, give or take.
