    These are outstanding. A professional family photographer would have charged you hundreds (thousands if you use Sonyam ;)  hahhahaa just kidding Sonya you are worth every penny). Actually I believe she used the 85 1.4 for that lovely shot of my family to the left. And now you have justification to get this lens yourself and take these shots everyday. I should definitely not have bought mine from a financial perspective, but I'm glad I did and will never get rid of it (I hope).

    Cute kid with great eyes.

  7. I disagree! There are very few pieces of glass that can out perform Nikon glass. Remember Nikon has been making glass for over a 100 years. Once again... the Sigma 50-150& 85 1.8 can not out do the 85 1.4. Now the Canon 85 1.2...that's a different story.

    Leo... awesome captures, the 85 1.4 is a great piece. You did an excelent job using it. Please post more.:smile:

    Thanks so much for the mention, Leo. That lens is quite a beauty and I think is only rivaled by the Canon 85 1.2. Is that a bad thing to say in this forum? :)

    Thanks Max :) 

    I'd love to give that canon a go! Free rental time? I need a 1ds Mark III and 85 1.2, make it happen! :smile:

    Hahaha, that's funny, because that's the exact combination of equipment I took out last night. You can come by the shop and I'll let you play around with it there :)
