D700 + Sigma 85mm 1.4 Simply Mind Blowing! Lots of photos!
Nov 13, 2010

Just received my Sigma 85mm 1.4 and all I can say is WOW. This lens is truly is awesome. The auto focus, contrast, saturation is simply mind blowing.

First off let me apologize for my model cleanness (been neglected outside for way to long). Second all the images shot wide open at 1.4 on D700. No PP whatsoever (except where noted), everything shot in RAW, imported in LR and then exported AS IS with NO sharpening of any kind. Then only other thing I've done is resizing for the web.

Here is the image that went through my standard processing. No sharpening in LR, sharpened in PS at 75% intensity. Note the creamy background, mmmmm buttery!

Again here is slightly processed image. Damn this lens is sharp at 1.4!

Here is 100% crop from the photo above. NO PP at all, no sharpening straight from RAW. Did I say that this lens is sharp as hell!

Well hope you liked my post; let me know if you want to see more photos!
