  5. Igor,

    What a beauty, indeed! Did you mean AIS 35mm f/1.4? I am not aware of a 30 1.4... I recently acquired the AIS 35/1.4 as well, but I have yet to produce something as lovely, wide open. Yet, I love my copy! :wink::smile:
     
  6. Totally agree Igor......beautiful shot.

    Thanks Philippe, sorry, my mistake, it's a 35/1.4 of course :redface:
    I'm just lying with a flu/hi temperature/other nasty things :eek: so got mixed up a bit... :redface:
    The most complicated part of shooting with such "speeders" is super-narrow DOF, not too easy to get used to it! :smile:

    Thank you Peter!
     
  12. Nice, Igor. Two of the things I like most about the 35/1.4 are the close minimum focus distance and the narrow DOF you can achieve; this is a super example of both.

    Thanks Dave, I'd add the third: incredible sharpness wide open!

    That's a great lens, to be sure. But I think it had a bit of help creating that exquisite capture!

    You play with light very nicely.

    Thanks Holmes, I really chose a "short light" type for this one, not typical for me :smile:
