Red leaves, green leaves, 50mm and a gardener

And there’s a “1.4” to go with the “50mm”, since this is about my new lens, the Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM.

First test object, especially to compare the depths of focus, was my greening Christmas star (poinsettia), the longevity of which I wrote about here in late February, here first with maximum aperture of 1.4:

And with aperture 8:

If you’re interested: On this gallery page I’ve got seven more aperture steps.
