Wink New lens, new shots!

A big thank-you to Tony the 'Chinese Chef', for sending me the long-awaited Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens this morning.

It is around 3x the price of the f/1.8, but I thought I'd rather spend more an a lens I'd rather use in the long-term.

Compared to the stock 18-55mm lens, it certainly a lot better in low light levels & the bokeh provides for some lovely atmospheric effects.

Here's a few shots I've taken, straight after unwrapping it & mounting it onto the 450D's body:

No gaussian blurring has been used in these shots, although I have carried out a little vignetting to increase the 'Christmas effect'.
