Re: 85mm f/1.2 L II first shots

Wow, Barney, the photos are impressive. I've owned mostly "L" zooms and particularly love my 70 - 200 f/2.8 II. But recently, I've been mulling a purchase of one of the triumvirate of L primes (35, 50 or 85).

I think you've just made my decision for me! Yours are exactly the kind of shots I love to take (or at least, hope to shoot with some consistency).

Quick questions, did you post-process any of the posted samples?
Did your copy of the lens require micro-focus adjustment with your camera?

In my opinion, you don't need a body upgrade!

Well done!


Thanks Deji, that's really kind of you to say that!

On your questions - some have a bit of post processing, others don't - images 6,7,11,16,19,21,29,and 33 have had some adjustments made. THe rest are just jpgs from the original RAW files.

The lens doesn't seem to need micro adjusting - although that's not something I can achieve with my ageing camera body anyway
