To be honest, he said it was an awful lot of pressure I put on him to buy it. I guess that says something about me. But honestly, I have wanted a wide aperture lens for a really long time, and we have been on such a budget I had put it off as a pie in the sky dream, until I heard the price for this one.
Every time I take a picture with it, I think to myself, Holy Shit! I've never been able to capture photos like this before, particularly with such low light. I am super excited about it.

I'm completely addicted. I took like 300 photos in about an hour. The one limitation I can think of is that it cannot zoom and do the same thing (give me the f1.8 photos I've coveted for so long, and now have.) That will be the next lens to lust after.
