ROT Rally and the 50mm

June 14, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
Last Friday, Van Sutherland and I took to the streets of Austin to see what we could find during the 2011 Republic of Texas Biker Rally right here in Austin, Texas.  For the occasion, I brought along my new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G Autofocus Lens to play with. 

Yes, I took the advice of most of the guys from this post and pulled the trigger on this lens. Anyway, that was my main lens for our excursion and I must say, it is pretty fun to play with.  As you can see in the shot below, it has great bokeh and it's incredibly sharp.  I just have to get used to such a shallow depth of field, but it is fun to blur the background for a different look.  Getting pics during the rally was interesting since I was playing with the new lens.  Most of them are trash, and really this one isn't great, but I like it none the less.

Oh, and about the rally...  I've never seen so many bikes on one place before in my whole life!  Supposedly there were 45,000 - 50,000 at the rally!  As a former biker, I was in hog heaven!  It really makes me want to get another, but not sure I ever will. 

Well, thanks for dropping by and if you ever want a good prime for your Nikon, get the Nikkor 50mm f1.4D!
