  1. 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......

    shot wide open with Flash
    original.

    @ f2 natural light

    @ f4
    View attachment 87134

    @ f2
    View attachment 87135

    I also like it a lot with the Canon 500D:
    @ f16 View attachment 87136

    @f16 again with 500D
    View attachment 87137

    @ f8 the first fly of this season (500D again)
    View attachment 87138


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

    Thanks for looking!

    What a killer! Post like this a VERY VERY bad for my bank account!
    The sharpness at f2 is unbelievable.

    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.

  5. The last three images are amazing!!! Wow, I kept touching my monitor because the bubbles look so real and I think I can hear the fly buzzing!! :eek:

    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...

  7. Beautiful shots, Michael! I especially love that orange flower! :smile: What a good idea to stick the Canon 500D on that lens....fantastic results!
     
  8. 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
     
  9. Ciao Dave

    just a though, since I have both them. Remember you usually can do a step FORWARD but rarely can do it BACKWARD :Wink:
     
  10. Painfully true!
     
  11. Works well for me too! Also nice on the 180/2.8.
     
  12. Just to try...

    N/T, just a try...

    105 F2 wide open
     
  13. ok, so that...

    105 F2 @ F2 + DC set R 5.6

    105 F2 @ F2 + DC set F 5.6

    [​IMG]

    Focus always on the middle bottle
     
  14. 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.
    [​IMG]

    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?

  16. 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:

    Very nice - I have been thinking about this lens for a while now. Like the combination with the 500D.
