LOL.  Buzz, the apologies were not for how you look,
which in that photo could have been a slightly
dishelveled John Houseman in the Paper Chase, 
after a night partying. (What ?  Professor Kingsfield 
partying ?)

No apologies necessary, Phong, that's exactly what I look like!  Your
lens is, of course, too good.  The stubble I wore that night has long
transformed into a proper beard.



Have you used the 50mm 1.4, 85mm f1.8 or 135mm f2.0 ?  I would be
to hear your (and others') opinion on them.  In mine, these are very
good wide open.  Here's a couple of handheld shot at 1.4 ISO 400:
(In fact the entire Thanksgiving series were taken with the EF 50mm f1.4
lens, handheld on a D30.  USM is on the conservative side for these)

Here's another one, at a Boston LUG gathering last year (apologies to
our own Buzz Hausner):
(USM is more aggresive on this one)
