This was at f/1.8 on a D700, iso 1000, 1/60th (I guess I have a pretty steady hand lol). I was waiting to shoot some fancy cakes for a friend and couldn't pass up the chance to snap this one of one of her many dogs (most of which are rescues, everything from this pitbull to 2 chihuahua's, they're all so friendly).

Thank you. I've never tried the G, I mean if someone gave me one I'd give it a fair try, but the D has been so good to me I don't have any desire to change it up (if/when that time ever comes, I'd definitely take the time to try both the G and the Sigma version and then decide if I should get one of those or pick up another used D version).

Great shot Jon. Does it behave the same on both the D700 & D610 or is there anything worth mentioning. Thinking of getting both the D610 and 85 1.4D.

Thanks.
Thank you. In my experience it performs equally as well on both bodies, but I personally prefer my D700 for people photos. I've been using the D700 for so long I know exactly how to get things the way I like it, with the D610 the colors are usually a little different so it takes a little more work to get it the way I like.

I still prefer the rendering of this ol' glass. Both are rendered nicely!

The 85/1.4D is still my go-to lens for the shots I do not want to miss. And it is also a very versatile lens (portrait, landscape, group shots etc.).

Just three test shots with my favorite model - Emma (now 5.5 months old).

(1) What is Grandpa doing there?


(2) Excuse me Grandpa, I recognize you behind that black box...


(3) Look grandpa - I can laugh


Enjoy

Klaus, those are all winners. Great subjects and the pictures show what a fantastic lens the the 85/1.4D really is.
You're right Jakob.
I got home, unpacked the lens, put it onto the camera, drove to a restaurant and shot.
No test shots before. I love the Cream Machine!

Regards
Klaus
