Saving Money

By SlowSong
A bit of a boring shot, but I like it.
Having sold my nifty fifty Canon 50mm f1.8 STM a while ago (because it was very slow at focussing and noisy too, almost like it had sand in the barrel), I thought I might like to indulge myself with the f1.4 model. However, I found my rather lovely 40mm F2.8 pancake in the drawer so I took it out for a spin. I got to love it all over again. Not only is it quick and quiet, I saved myself about £200 into the bargain. Smile
