New 85mm f1.4 Shots (baby!)
Feb 26, 2012

My baby is awesome! He is 3.5 months old and happy as can be. I'm happy with the new 85mm f1.4 Rokinon I just acquired for my birthday. I do find the focusing and metering is a little hard to nail sometimes and the contrast is not as good as my Zuiko zooms. A little purple fringing wide open. I might not depend on it in a portrait shoot if I were pressed for time or had to catch the moments during an event. But for the price I'm really pleased. It's sharp wide open, seems very well constructed, works well at lower light levels, has beautiful bokeh, and with a little processing I'm happy with the results.

And here's my baby.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
