The Beast for people pics...

  1. I find the 28-70 lives on my camera 90% of the time these days, and have been analyzing why. Of course, my favorite subjects are people, and I'll take hundreds of portraits during an event, such as a wedding. The FOV range of 42-105 allows me to use one lens indoors and outside.

    It's wide enough for group shots...

    or environmental portraits.

    It's long enough for selective focus (blurred backgrounds)...

    and fast enough for candids.

    And when it comes to sharpness and contrast, it's in a very exclusive league.

    I consider it the best choice for a people-picture zoom, though that's largely based on my subjective preference for tight shots.

    Nice shots, as usual......the Beast is a versatile lens!
  3. Frank, these are simply wonderful photographs. Especially the people ones..... full of life........

    I know you love the lens but....... in this case I think the photographer is just as good....if not a whole lot better!!!!!!
