I have been eyeing that 90mm for sometime, but so far the NISI closeup filter is doing great. Plus I hear rumors that a 35mm GM might be coming in 2021 that would move up on the list.Todd, you're going to LOVE that 135mm f/1.8!!!! It is a gorgeous lens, especially for portraits, but also does really well for other things, too.
I can't believe I forgot about this, but a while ago on a whim I impulsively ordered myself a fun and rather gimmicky "toy," which arrived today: the Lensbaby Sol 45! So Santa did surprise me today after all! LOL! It's a fun little thing -- actually right now I'm still getting the hang of it. Definitely it is a specialty lens, not something one would use all the time, absolutely not a replacement for my beloved 90mm macro lens, but it's rather cool, actually.
Oh yea...lot's of interesting "street shots" can gathered just while waiting at a red lightIndeed, I wish Santa would bring me some common sense about doing the same. When I was running errands today, I came upon a construction scene where one crane was maneuvering part of another crane down onto the sidewalk. As if that wouldn't have made a good enough photo, there were about six people standing on the very end of the crane way up above the ground where they had separated the lowered part of the crane from the remaining part still intact.
He will love that 35 f1.8 DX for newborn shots. I've used mine for that!!I played Santa for my son-in-law. He picked up the 3500 kit to photo his expected son, our first grandbaby due 12/24. I got him the 35 1.8 Dx, Zeis Cleaning kits, polarizer. He needs the faster aperture for baby portraits than kit 18-55. HO HO HO!
