Forget eye lashes - welcome whiskers :) 100 % Crop A77 + Sony 85 2.8
Jun 7, 2012

So after showing some "comparisons" - or rather similar images of my A900 and D800. I went back to the studio to use the A77 for what I bought it for. Images of furry pets. Note: those little critters are moving extremely quickly, so motion blur is a problem or slightly OOF images.

Here are two samples and a 100% crop at ISO 100 and f11. Pet rats have very long noses so getting all the way from eyes to noses in focus, one has to stop down.

I used the 85 2.8 which I really like a lot. The first image shows the original crop, almost, I sat one meter away. Using the articulated LCD is a joy, no more lying on the floor
