Oh Simon... excellent portraits... and the DoF... :eek:

Oppsss... I feel that itch again...better hide the wallet... :biggrin:
Thanks Panos. The one thing that hits oyu straiht away about this lens is the razor thin DOF. Reminds me of the Leica Noctilux. I think the 85mm @ f/1.4 is definitely a lens to manually focus a lot of the time to get it right where you want it.

Way to go Simon, yet another one!! Go easy on the sharpening though, I think these may be over sharpened a tad.
Thanks Frits. I will look out for the sharpening. I used my normal sharpening on these and thought, because they were at f/1.4, they would be OK, but this lens seems to be plenty sharp at f/1.4 and could use less sharpening.

sweet and congrats...but if u want both eye's in focus you're guna need a little more distance between the camera and the model ....;-))
Thanks Nuteshack. I want to stay close and let this baby work its magic. I don't normally go for such a big difference between the two eyes, but I figured since I now have f/1.4 to play with I would go to the extreme :smile:

Damn it!
No, no I didn't see this thread!
Yes you did! Lens lust is a wonderful thing :biggrin:

Well if you left the EXIF in it's quite obvious, isn't it? :biggrin:
Looks like you already enjoy it.
Good point Daniel! I think I am going to love this lens :smile:

Thanks Sarah. I think we will both be having fun with these 1.4 lenses. I look forward to seeing your pictures in the days and weeks to come.

Come on, Simon. Let's see you take the same shot with your AF-S 500 f/4 I while you still have it! I think you would be pleased with its results, too, but you would simply have to be a little further back. :wink:

In any case, congratulations on your 85mm f/1.4. I think you'll definitely enjoy using this lens!

Regards,

Paul

Thanks Paul. I never thought of the 500mm as a portrait lens, but at least the girls would be acting naturally as I took the pics :smile:

I agree completely. I wish I had bought this lens a long time ago. I had the 85/1.8 with my F5 which was also a great lens, but there is just an immediate magic about the 85/1.4.
