Canon f1.4. The nifty fifty.

I don't often shoot with my "nifty fifty" preferring the versatility of my usual walkabout lens, the Canon 27-70mm f2.8, but the "nifties" faster maximum aperture of f1.4 came in handy in isolating the subject from a busy background in this quick street shot recently. Great value for the nominal price of this glass.

 A quick street portrait on busy Nguyen Hue Street in Saigon during Tet. The nifty fifty, shot wide open, even makes people disappear!
