    Hey everyone, I finally got to use my "new" 50mm f1.4 lens today (the adapter for my digital camera finally came after about 30 days of waiting for it to get here from China). Just took a few shots with it. let me know what you think!

    the first one is really cool, I'm going to assume that was taken at f1.4? =)

    1st one is great. 3rd one is also very good. Looks like a nice sharp lens you have there.

    They are small but it is enough for me to pick no: 3 (the white part) as the sharpest of the lot.

    I do have problem shooting flowers in sharpness as I always find it soft. I think I see the same with these yours. There must be ways to make it look sharper like in the glossy magazines instead of blaming the lens. But - maybe the lens is responsible?

    well, the main thing here , is that i was shooting at f1.4, manually focusing, so it was kind of a- move toward and away from the flower till its in focus. thanks for the comments so far!
