    EF 50mm f/1.4 USM does new-born baby

    Just testing the image upload feature of this forum, not bad for a non-L!

    very nice indeed - you've almost made me forego my wide/wide zoom purchase. I want the 50 1.4 - soon I will have it - but priorities are priorities.

    Thanks, I don't use this lens enough. Natural light in maternity ward seemed like a good chance to give it a go - although it does suffer a fair amount of barrell distortion, portraits and stuff like this are fine.

    Are you thinking EF-S 10-22mm?

    Not quite that wide just yet. 50 is as wide as I am currently. I was looking at the 28/1.8 USM, Sigma's 30 1.4 HSM, I settled on the 35 F2 [with a little help from Jamie's results with his 35 f2]. Price/performance were two big ones. I need something wider indoors this holiday season that will still allow me to make my holiday purchases, , and the 35 F2 will do nicely. More of a standard FL on the XTs 1.6x - but I think thats just what I am looking for right now. But again your results with the 50 1.4 are exactly why I want that lens!

    Wow! 5! No lonely siblings around that household! We're just deciding on #2 or not. Lovely family photos. Congradulations on the newest addition!

    BTW: I got (ordered) myself that 50m f1.4 today (along with the 24-105L). Be selling my f1.8 version off. Funny; I posted a request for advice on another forum and got a lot of suggestions to keep the f1.8 and get the 85 f1.8. Somehow; with all the choices out there it never quite works out to "get this slightly inferior one just to try out the length" because it seems even more unjustifiable to upgrade rather than round out a lineup. For that reason; I'm forcing myself to make that trade.

    I think you'll find the 50mm will be a nice FL on a 20D. I bought mine years ago when shooting film thinking that one should always have a prime in the kit - and it never got used! The 85mm was a better fit for my working needs.

    Now with cropped sensors it's making more sense (for me anyway). Just don't use it for architecture...

    Thanks, he's frowning a lot lately - looks like a little old man with all those wrinkles on his forehead!
