Yeah, had never really thought about it either but was like what the hell. Think they turned out alright, but it's def. a little bit of a task to shoot with a fixed lens at a show due to having to move around all the people and other cars to get the object in frame.Depends. I bought a Canon 1.8 and it was about ¼ of the cost of a 1.4. I love that lens, but I never seem to use it at car events. I might have to in the future after seeing these shots.
