I think also part of the issue is lens selection. The 100 2.8 macro is probably fine for outdoor photography portraiture, but indoors it may struggle to handle the light situation. Usable definitely, optimal, probably not.

A better lens out of Michel's options would have been the 50 1.7 in this case. An 85 1.4 lens would have been ideal in this environment.

True Jimmy, after I saw my shots it was to be my plan to get the 50mm F/1,7. I will use it today.

The DOF is tricky with the 100mm to follow the action fast, yes the 85mm should be better (but I didn't have one).

I also noticed that the era of Beercan, B-Beercan and secret HS is over for me, not really suitable for really HQ images with a 24MP APS-C (they are sharp --especially the 28-135mm-- but images seems "cottony" a tad, at the same time, like David Hamilton's rendering a little) and I have a total of 6 copy for all. So it's confirmed to my side.

But I don't want to sell (I want to use these lenses for the rendering and caractere they have, for some situations). And also I'm waiting for the FF generation next...
