New lens

I just got a new lens and after trying it out last night, I am in love. I've been reading on the OSP forum about a lot of people using "primes" which I found out meant fixed focal length (no zoom). They are typically cheaper and you can get them with apertures that go down to 1.2. I had always thought that I was missing something in not being able to acheive that sweet shallow depth of field even in a lens that stops at 2.8, but holy cow what a difference it makes! I got just a standar 50mm 1.4 that I plan to use for portraits and weddings. I think I'm going to be using flash a LOT less now (which I don't like the look of anyway) and loving my pictures more. The ones above I shot last night during a reception at the gallery and I'm really stoked!
