    looks like you focused on the nose or lips. (but then again this is why I hate 1.4 for portraits). I much prefer to have the eyes pop

    I like f4... they seem umm green
     
  9. I'm telling you, Nute, the sweet spot is between f/2 and f/3.5. The subjects are sharp, and the backgrounds are still creamed.

  10. Your son's lips are in focus but his eyes are not. Are you using the AF ON button to lock focus? When I first got my 85mm f1.4 I didn't like it because so many of my wide open pictures were not sharp where I wanted them to be sharp. This is a demanding lens but one that has the capability of producing some spectacular shots. I agree with Franks post above but I will also say that I have been successful at f1.4. It requires extreme care in setting your focus and even then the zone of focus is so short as to have some of the person out of focus no matter what you do. Of course I am talking about the head and shouders shots. If you back up a little the zone of focus gets wider and you are able to get the full person in focus.

    This is a great lens and I am glad that you are continuing to work with it.

    i think Frank is in my range the best. I love a good 2.8 shot on a 1.8/1.4 lens... I love f4 on most 2.5 lenses

    that's actually my son's friend ...but yes u r right,,this was just a hastey grab shot (like a lot of my shots, lol) and i liked the look etc ...i'm still in the discovery stage with this lens and i'm digging it. this is a very challenging lens @f1.4 or anything close to that, and in order to nail it there u have to make pains so to speak. with distance, np. but up close is another story for sure. the 85 1.4 is much for critial here than say the 50 1.4.

    here's a couple @1.4 i rather like, maybe not perfect but i like none the less. @1.4 it totally isolates them from a rather cold clinical invironment.
