Another thing that is very very nice about this lens when shooting wide is the bokeh. Very special.
+1 ...... Love the bokeh on this lens. It seems strange, but I often use this lens for a portrait lens for close up work.
I like the Jobu stuff, the small and medium Gimbal heads are the best in the business. The Wimberley is also very good, as is their service.
I have the RRS PG-02 LLR, and I've used the Wimberley II. Both are excellent.
The RRS setup allows multirow pano shots with regular lenses, and it breaks down into two pieces for easier transport. Its side-mount design lets you reach 'under' the lens from either side to access rings/controls.
Regarding the Wimberley, I think the P-10 may be too small. For superteles, you need a P-20 at least, longer ones for larger lenses (http://www.tripodhead.com/products/lens-plates-main.cfm). Personally, I went with a RRS replacement lens foot.
Playing about with my daughter's 1100D. I'm surprised by how much latitude there is in the RAW data. I can pull it around much more than I thought would be possible.Bokeh looks good. 2008 is when I first got introduced to dslr. 40d and 50mm f1.4
This is just one exposure, no flash, shot on the 50/1.4 @ about f2.8. ISO 200
Thanks Dylan, I find the bokeh of the 1.4 lens can be quite good if the scene is right.
Here's one that I just couldn't resist; shot at f1.6
Both are great for portraits, the 85mm focal length is more versatile, IMO. 135mm is good for individual headshots. Your signature indicates you have the 70-200 II, f/2 is close, f/1.2 isn't so close.
