Wow. What a difference! I see a major difference from my old lens that came with the SLR I bought back in 1986. This new one is a 50mm prime with auto focus. I'm getting older and finding that my eye isn't as sharp as it was. The description of this lens mentioned a wonderful bokeh and indeed, I see it! The backdrop for this image is the new paint job in our dining room and I think the color is fabulous for this picture.
