The first day of the rest of my life with the 1.2
17 May 11
After over five years of faithful service my usual lens has finally, tragically, croaked it. It had been having focusing issues for a while, but the final blow was a drop on the concrete floor at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, after which it stopped focusing completely. Considering I treated it pretty terribly, five years isn't bad going and it meant that I could finally justify getting the 1.2. I can't even describe how utterly overjoyed I am with the 1.2. It's the perfect lens.
These are just some photos I took the first day I got it, around Brighton and at afternoon tea with Andrew and my parents for my birthday. Seeing them all together, it looks like a romp through whimsical blogger cliches! Oh dear.
