    Got a new 85 1.4 and went for a walk after dark. I'm really happy with it so far. Not a lot of post on these, comments always appreciated. sorry about the larger ones, photobucket resized them, but it's not displaying properly.

    Congratulations on your new lens. An 85mm f1.4 (!) - wow.
    I like the colours in the phone box photo and the blurred backgrounds you created by going wide open in most ... only the eye in focus of your co-worker creeps me out a little, it sports all sorts of colours where there should be the white of his eye, only is there no white... :shock:

    thanks for the comments corinna. i agree with you on the shot of my co-worker, but i sort of like it - there were at least 4 different types of ambient lighting hitting his face.. kind of a nice set of colours.

    Interesting shots. I have an 85mm f1.8 & know it can take a while to get used to the zoom factor! But you will get sharp, crisp images! :thumbup:

    Try some tight crops on portraits.

    i actually prefer primes. when i go to focus a zoom, i throw off my focal length.
