Fast Lenses

Sunday was dark, dank and gloomy. So of course I chose to shoot with available light...

It was my little nephews fifth birthday, so I just snapped away. I thought I could get away with a minimum shutter speed of 1/30th, but my hand clearly is not as steady as it once was. Even shooting everything wide-open at f1.4 using the 50mm prime, the ISO was auto-climbing into the 600-1000 area. (I did say it was dark).  

The picture of the 'Hombre' above was shot a little higher at 1/40th as was the candle shot and they didn't have any motion blur. Under close inspection, most of the other shots did. I'll have to up my minimum shutter speed to 1/60th or 1/125th in future.
