    I finally pulled the trigger on the 40-150f2.8, the morning of the 2015 NYC Pride Parade...I almost did it Sat nite at B&Y but waited until Sun AM and, saved $200 ;-)

    Parked myself about 1/2 block away from the Stonewall Inn for 8 hours or so and used the 40-150 exclusively. Very pleased with it; shot wide open for all shots.

    Some pix below, and LOT more in my flickr set. No nudity, but mildly NSFW.

    Given the SCOTUS decision a couple of days prior, it was a very festive atmosphere. And lots of great color.

    It's a great lens but DOF is sometimes an issue wide open if your subject gets close.

    Indeed it's a fun and festive parade to watch and definitely one of my favorite parades to photograph. Here's a couple shots from back in 2007.
