Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, R.I.P. / I've been tagged.


Well this is my beautiful lens which broke in two. I clicked back together the parts and I can make pictures again. But only from a small distance. It cannot focus anymore in long distance.

- My poor dead lens. -

- As you can see, the right side of the lens is little lower than the other side. It's f***ed up. -

These ones were taken with the 'Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II'. It's an 'okay' lens. But I prefere my '50mm 1.8' one. Goodbye my friend. It's been a short friendship (november 2008) but I've had some good times. R.I.P.

- When I opened up my bag, it looked like this... -

I've been tagged by Diane. So here we gooo!

5 things I love:
1. Certain people around me. You know who you are!
2. Being creative (photography, graphic design...experimenting in photoshop)
3. Sitting behind the laptop / being online: checking my e-mail accounts every 10 or so minutes, reading blogs (fashion, graphic design, photography) listen to music.
4. When I know I don't have any obligations for the next day...that's the best feeling.
5. I love good food.

5 things I hate:
1. People who think they're 'all that'. Especially women. So annoying. :P
2. When my laptop isn't working (shuts down, being slow...very slow.)
3. When I make a picture, and it turns out very bad!!!
4. Being hungry.
5. When I have to go to bed. I NEVER sleep before 2am because I want to do way too much.

5 Random things you don't know about me: (this is a bit too personal...but here we go)
1. I like it when bad things happen to me, because after those bad moments, it can only go one way up: the good way. With this in mind, I always have a optimistic attitude towards life...
2. I've released music on vinyl.
3. I love 'women-shows' like Oprah, Gilmore Girls, Sex and The City, Gossip Girl, etc. and I'm about to watch The City because my sister told me I should watch it. (I don't want to, because I don't want to get hooked on another show!)
4. I've practised Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for about a year. But, unfortunately, I don't have the time for it right now.
5. I've lived in Sweden for 5 months (januari 2008 - june 2008). So, jag kan talar lite Svenska! Men, min engelska är naturligtvis mycket bättre. Jag tänker flytta tillbaka till Sverige på studerar Master Programme Medier & Kommunikation på Stockholms universitet. Or something like that...:P

I'd like to tag The Man Who Knew Too Much, because he's about to leave Amsterdam for a country far, far away from here! If that's okay with him. If not...I know someone else. Har-har.

RIP 50mm 1.8. May you go to the heaven where all good 50mm 1.8's reside.

I think I might do the tag thing, but it can have some delay (few days). :)

You are a very interesting dude, I'm so glad you were the one I tagged.
That's so cute that you shared your broken lens photos with everyone; I hope it gets a proper burial.

Sara said...

Did you just autopsied the lense?Listen to Almost Lover, by The Fine Frenzy. Melancholic, sad, and I think you will see that she is, indeed, singing about your lense.
You could also write some words to honour her life (the lense's life).

Emily said...


I think the lenses look quite interesting from the inside.

Btw, The City sucks :P
& as you know, it's probably fake.

But, Gossip Girl all the way. Desperate Housewives is a good one too.

Rita said...

Oh goodness, those pictures of the lens hurt!!!!!!! I would cry, literally cry, if that were mine. But hey, everything happens for a reason, even if it's unclear yet :)

Hehe, and I find the whole 'women-show' thing funny. I have only watched Gilmore Girls out of all those you listed, they remind me of me and my mom before she got married again hehe.

Dominica said...

Give the lens a nice resting place - a pink box with a nice satin bow !
Well, this tag thing sure is interesting ; it gets you to learn your fellow bloggers better !
I hate it too when computers are slow or not working (like this morning, sometimes I really hate Apple...)
Point 5 in the things you hate ... why do we need sleep anyway ?
I feel like my time is running out sometimes and I still wanna do so much and I'm gonna be 40 soon !! OMG !!!
What record did you make ?
Am very curious now like any "all that kinda woman" should be ...LOL

take care !
When is your new lens coming in ?

Renée Sturme said...

wat nog cooler is, om ook eens te gaan slapen :)

die code werkt helaas alleen met .gif, ben op zoek naar eentje voor .jpg (en dan ook nog eens als URL).

de love/hate lijst in deze post zou ik overigens wel geschreven kunnen hebben.

veel plezier met je nieuwe lens. maar nu ga ik slapen, moet over vijf uurtjes weer op.

LoveMore said...

oh you poor thing! RIP. tear.

xx LM

Rita said...

Whoa! I just totally read what you wrote in Swedish (it is Swedish, isn't it?), and this time I actually paid attention, and I think I got what you were saying!!

You speak a little Swedish, but your English is naturally better? You're thinking of going to Sweden for a Master program in media and communication at some university in Stockholm!?

If I actually got any of that right, I will take a Swedish course, man. Eaaassy stuff (watch, I'll get it all wrong now).
