{goldilocks and the 100L}

I wish I could say it was mine, but alas it is not.  I'm second shooting a wedding with a friend of mine this coming weekend, so another friend was kind enough to lend me her 100L for us to use for the wedding.  I wanted to play with it a bit tonight, but was too lazy to go outside to really take advantage of it's full potential, so instead, I just took some shots of Kaydence eating ice cream after dinner...her favorite thing. ;-)

This is the first time my camera has ever touched L glass and it is already truly, madly, deeply in love already.  Even indoors in low-light, this lens is a beauty...sigh.  Oh well, someday...someday. ;-)  I can't wait to try it outdoors.  I'm so blessed to have such sweet friends who trust me enough with their expensive equipment.

Here are a few mommy shots from tonight.  For my photo friends who are curious, my settings are listed below.  These are not perfect by any means -- with an ISO of 3200 there will be some noise, but you get the idea.


100mmL
ISO 200
f/2.8 (wide open)
1/160

The rest of them were taken with these settings:

100mmL
ISO 3200 (highest my camera will go)
f/2.8 (wide open)
1/100

Leah, while I don't have a Cannon, I do have lens lust lately. I actually want a 50, which you're so ready to chuck! I only have one, a very good 18-120 right now. But I have a wedding coming up and I'm going to rent something fun to try, in the hopes that it will magically become my next Christmas gift :-)
