    It was a lovely evening today and I made a quick trip to my favorite marshland area. Shot this one with Sigma 150/2.8. Another little fellow (earlier shot) can be found here.

    On our earlier excursion with Peter, we ran into this beauty.

    This one wasn't that bad looking either.

    -Oh, it also does beetles :tongue:

    Odd. I always thought Bugzilla was software for managing bug reports. I guess I must have missed the latest release. :smile:
     
  3. Very nice, Rane. I like the use of back-lighting.
     
  4. This lens acheives terrific sharpness and bokeh!

    Maybe I'll consider this first over the 135 f2 for my Portrait lens. How's the AF speed on HSM? And do standard Sigma QC apply to various copies?

  5. I gave credit to the photog, but you're right maybe I should've asked.

    Yet another picture taken few days ago.

    This Bugzilla really is a versatile lens and produces beautiful bokeh and its sharpness is also great when you find a good sample (fourth was ok for me..).
     
  7. Took these the other day. I'm so glad I got this lens, totally worth all $600!!

    those are absolutely stunning shots!
    it'll still be about 6 or 7 months until i'm able to buy this lens, but it's definitely in my future!

    nice shots from all

    my question for rolsen - you show sb600/sb800 - were any of these taken using a flash ?

    "Cream Machine Jr" would be more appropriate for this lens!!!!

    No, none of those above. This one is shot with some fill flash (SB800):

    Sr. will still have to go to the much more expensive, though shorter in focal length, Nikon 85 1.4.
     
  14. Not sure I'd agree even with the 85's advantage of f1.4.

    At double the focal length and half the aperature, the DOF at a given distance should be about the same. The point is the bokeh of the "Bugzilla" is just as creamy as the 85/1.4, the lenses just happen to be two almost entirely different tools for two entirely different jobs.
