Serious bokeh on this baby! :happyforyou:

Ignore the chair,I still haven't painted it yet. And his poor eyes. It's sticky and humid here, and we're all dealing with red running eyes :(

I actually bought the 35 mm 1.8 lens too. :oops: :oops: I haven't even had a chance to play with it. I'll play with that one tomorrow!

*swoon* I think this lense is on my Christmas list. Seriously amazing!

I got the 35mm F/2.0 for my birthday and am loving the results, even if my 7mo preggo self has NO energy to play around with it. I opted for the 35mm first because I knew the long focal length of the 85mm would be too much for me. Plus, with a newborn coming I knew most of my shots would be indoors so I didn't want to be backed in a corner just to get a shot in focus.
