D200 + 85 F1.4

  1. Ciao a tutti (Hi all, folks)

    Still needing to improve, but, due the low and variable light, almost no flash allowed and manual exposure and focusing not to disturb artists.. well, I think it's not too bad, overall.. :)

    Focusing the keys of the piano has been quite hard...





    All the others shots here: http://italy74.smugmug.com/gallery/2665509

    All the best

    not to blow on your fire, but surely once tried you won't go back. It's really a marvel of a lens! You have just to decide which focal lenght suits you better, the 85 (f1.8/f1.4) or the 105 F2 with DC control.

    All the best

    Love the first shot and they are all good. I take it these were at f/1.4. I see the purple fringing that this lens is prone too when wide open.

    OK f/2 it is. I found that the fringing goes away between f/2.8-f/4.
