I really like this lens, Thought I might share some recent test-shots.

These are no great captures or Art-pieces, I just had so much fun shooting with it......

I very much like the ability to isolate the subject form background. Sharpness @ f2 is outstanding!

Thanks for looking!

thats very sharp at f2. Actually i am beginning to realise that its not so much the lens but the person behind that makes the shot. I like the first one very much, great lighting.

I have been trying to decide between this lens and the 85 1.4, I think I would like the extra focal length.

Ohhhh... I'd never thought of pairing my 105mm DC with the 500D lens.

That first flower shot's just a luscious photograph, sir !

Wow.

I really wish I could get over to the EGT to sit down and talk with you then shoot with you. Alas, I'm already committed for work in that period...

Have you won in the lottery? New car, several new lenses, ....

That lens is surely a gem. If I would urgently need one I would get it, but just as a toy ..... I need the money for other things right now (e.g. new appartment).

Anyway, you make any lens shine.

Cheers

ps.. pay attention..

when using DC in open and wide spaces, this is what happens...

Except straight lines (I've never able to make a building perfectly vertical!!!)
I've aimed at the central part of the building.

Then, always focusing on the light yellow building but set DC to R5.6.. do you see WHAT is really (more or less) in focus?

My 500D has 77mm threads, while my 105mm DC has 72mm threads. So I assume you need a step-up adapter?

-- Russ
Yes I use a 72-77mm step up ring....

....but here's a little secret: You can screw the 500D in the hood! It's not a 100% fit, but hold well enough to use it. :tongue:
