When I was a little girl I did not have a real barbie. We did not have a lot of money and I had an almost barbie doll called Steffi. What I did own was a barbie brochure and I could spent days looking at the pages. I would browse on end until the brochure would fall apart. Not owning a Barbie or any of the Barbie accessories was ok, with my brochure I could image what owning it would feel like.
While growing up I never really could shake this habit. I still love magazines and can check (endlessly) websites with products, reading reviews and anything I can find about something I want to purchase. So when I decided to wanted to have the Canon 85mm 1,2L lens I have read and reviewed until I do not know when. Last Friday I decided it was time and here it is. It arrived on my doorstep. A couple of days after Christmas but it still feels like a present.
It is a beautiful lens, it is heavy, it focuses quite slow but it captures amazing images and that is why I have bought it. To be able to capture beautiful images. I have shot a couple of photographs already (off course) but I can not wait to put it through the test during the next wedding.
