    ooohhh, it's sooooo creamy

    First pics with my 85 1.4. Not the best, but just HAVE to share :smile:





  2. Darren, I picked one up today absolutely as a result of the incredible shots I have seen here. Congratulations.
  3. Congratulations! :D 
    The people here don't think you're a bad bad boy, your wife or significant other on the other hand is a different story! :D 
  4. Hey Darren, congrats on your new toy... And you too Mark...
    Look forward to seeing what shots you guys will produce from this lens... ;o))

    You guys play baseball down under??
    It's slowly going down in the states - our son's school just replaced baseball with lacrosse as a team sport.
    Nice shots btw!

    Nute, it's just wild. I have not found a way to shift it off 1.4 yet though - have you ? Lol.

    John, Baseball is not that big here. It runs third to cricket and tennis as a Summer sport.

    It just happens though that one of the biggest clubs is in my back yard and Stephen has joined up for the first time

    I'm quite looking forward to "covering" baseball and this is one of the reasons I justified this lens as the lights are hardly good and it was either a D3 or a faster lens than my 2.8's.

    D3 is next, lol
  16. Darren, you area a good boy. Enjoy the new lens.
  17. Wonderful images, Darren! Welcome to the club. It's obvious that this lens suits you very well.
