    One of my buddies bought my old S5 off me and wanted to jump right into using it and learning- so we went to a local village for a photowalk.

    Taken with the new 50D mated with my new Sigma 28mm F1.8 Macro:

    ISO 200, F8, 1/1250s @28mm

    I don't know what kind of flowers they are, but they blossom on a bush and none of them blossom out or up, they all blossom facing the ground, so I lay down under the branch furthest out and pointed the camera skyward and asked my buddy to hold the branch still :X

    I've been entirely too busy to shoot as much as I need to, but I did take a few shots at a cookout the other night. I'll probably post a couple here. None were spectacular, but I liked a few of them, mostly because a combination of the sun setting and fire on the grill and in the firepit created some interesting lighting.

    This is my brother-in-law's roomate/landlord Drew, who got a new grill, which prompted the cookout.

    I just got a 50 f/1.8 and hate the bokeh, I see your photo has the same affliction.
    I like the lighting, it gives texture and dimension to your image.

    The 50s brokeh is pretty bad for lights, candles, flares, but for normal backgrounds, ie see the trees, its pretty decent.

    For 100$ its an awesome brokeh: P

    Thanks for the comments.

    I wondered why I had to pay $130 for a used Minolta 50mm f/1.7 when a new Canon 50/1.8 was $85 until I picked one up. It is absolutely the crappiest feeling lens I have encountered, and I think the old Minolta had a 7 or 8 blade aperture. It is certainly good enough for now, but the 50/1.4 is way higher on my list than the Minolta/Sony f/1.4 ever was. If only it had real USM.
