I've been teaching my 8 yr old son the basics of photography and taking him out on expeditions with me.  Here's a portrait he took of me in the garage with low lighting with this lens.  It's one of the best portraits of me I've ever had.  We just set up his own flickr account to show off his handiwork from the last few months.  Most were shot with my really old 20D, but he's done well enough that I've upgraded him to my old 5D.

All very nice, in the 2nd set I really like the first and last ones. The seargent on the horse is giving precise and specific orders to the soldier on the ground, he knows what he is talking about. The girl on the bench has just experienced a trajedy, she feels all alone.

Thanks you, Sir, Dear Mr. candc.
The commends from you that make my days.
Have a good Sunday, Sir.

Dear Friends.

Enjoy.

Those are great shots!  This is a fantastic idea, and it's about time I ordered a set of extension tubes to try this!

I'm a huge fan of this lens. The 85L and the 100L is pretty much all I use for portraits. The 85L is definitely a "slow it down" lens and I usually have to tell the subject to get into a pose and hold it so the AF can do it's thing.

When it sings, it sings.

Man, I wish I had this lens. Having that sort of subject isolation is incredible. The bokeh is insane!


Beautiful shots everyone! :)

Sorry, I wish I had the Canon 85mm f1.2L to make a good comparison with my Sigma 85mm f1.4. I have read the Canon AF is very slow and it's heavier than the sigma (also much more expensive).
I used the Sigma 85mm 1.4 as my portrait lens, along witht the fabulous 70-200mm f2.8L IS II.

Dear Mr. Hjalmarg1
The Slow AF  is Canon EF 85 mm. F/1.2 L MK I, But The one that I have for 2+ years = MK II is a fast speed for AF, But We need to know that The Big Piece of Glass which slow the AF speed down, Plus It need to turn the focus ring  1 round 360 degree to set from the minimum distant to the infinity, compare to my 24-70 mm L = just 1/3 turn/ 120 degree turn the ring--- BUT, I learn from my experience, Every time that I finish the shot, I will change from AF to MF. and turn the focus at 10 feet distant, and push the focus button to AF = super fast AF for the next shot---Yes, Just help the horse  to push the cart, because the cart carry the heavy load of big piece of glass.
Nice to talk to you.
Surapon

PS. I love my Sigma 50 mm. F/ 1.4 too.

I serve in my church's nursery class for the youngest kids.  In January, the older ones graduate so I wanted to get some photos of them before they left.  This was my fastest lens and I wanted to break it out and really see what I could do with candid portraits with it.  With such a narrow depth of field, moving kids and slower AF, I didn't nail the focus as often as I had hoped, but I still ended up with many adorable photos.  This was one of my favorites:
