Beautiful work.

1. D800 is the first camera with resolution so high that it simply does not matter.
2. Most people who do not own/shoot d800 misunderstand it. Color depth and accuracy in addition to resolution is what makes d800 great. Resolution alone is over rated.

I really like your gallery, you are very talented, where do you think the 58 1.4 excels the most during the wedding sequences?, I am interested in this lens, I've seen a lot of great examples so far

Very impressive job. It appears they spared no expense at the wedding and they'll be glad they spend a sum on a photog would captured their day so well.

Talent, great equipment, and a photoworthy event-->wonderful images

(I'm sure you could hand over your d800, Df, and 58 1.4 to a mediocre photographer, who could succeed at getting mediocre pictures!)

Keep up the Beautiful work!

Hi Eric,

When I walked into the bride's house in the morning on the day of. I found my self using the DF with the 58 the most... It was snowing and gloomy outside and the house was dimly lit. I have my DF set to black and white and Auto Iso I didn't want my shutter to go anywhere below 1/100s so with that set as my lowest shutter I left my aperture at 1.8 the whole time and didn't worry about the digital noise in my files. The Df excels in that area. Also the portability and light weight allowed me to move around the house from one room to the other without any hassle. I also have the camera set to Quite shutter and I find that very benificial for intimate moments during makeup and getting ready sessions and especially at the church during the ceremony. There is a special thing about the rendering of that lens that is very hard to describe in words. The bokeh for sure is very smooth but that is only one aspect of the lens. It's an incredible portrait lens and I find my self using it more and more since I've gotten it. I personally think you will love the lens. Hopefully you find my input helpful to you.

Thanks,

Bill

Have you or anybody else ready this thread ever compared 58mm to a much cheaper 50mm f1.4?  How does 50mm compare in IQ.  From what I gather, the only drawback to 58mm is that it has 2ft minimum focusing distance.

You have provided your clients with one of best photo sets I've seen in many years. Absolute top quality and you should be extremely happy with every image in this set.

I don't think the camera has made much difference here; it's your eye and your technique that are first class. Having said that maybe you are more confident with this new combo.

Looking forward to your next wedding.
