    Hi,

    For the last few years I've used nothing other then a 50 mm prime 1.8.

    Now, I decided to get a new lens. An 85mm 1.8, even though I didn't really need it and took some test shots with it. What do you think?

    Settings were manual, f5.6 & shutter 250, WB-Auto

    They look pretty sharp and the bokeh looks great...nice lens.

    What I want to know...is what did you do to that child? Looks like you just said that the Easter Bunny isn't real. :lol: ;)

    Congratulations. Extraordinary sharpness, though I would have given a thought to 105mm too. Anyhow the baby is just cute. Pass on my greetings to him.

    Hi and thanks guys,

    These were so darn sharp right out of the camera I didn't even bother with sharpening in ps.

    The kid is my daughter and it was the first day we could go out without freezing in about 2 months.

    Anyway, When shes doing anything new, she always looks very serious and since she's never been down by the train tracks you can see the results I got.

    Thanks again,
    Mike V

    Mike, these actually look very nice. I'll be curious to see what ILP has to say about them :) Seem a bit different than your usual work... hehe but I like it! One day I shall get the 85mm as well. Finally getting my 50mm next week and then before summer I'd like to get the 30mm... although maybe I should get the 85mm for summer... hmmm...

    aimlessconversations. I don't post a lot of work because I have trouble finding children to shoot, but that should change a lot. I give a lot of comments on ILP though :) Only really hang out in JSO, cause it moves so fast.

    Yeah, I like this better! Haha although it has more the ILP look- and I'm a fan of the ILP look.
