Re: Lets see your 58mm samples, was it worth it?

I now understand why this lens is special. I'm not going to discount my ability to capture the moment here, but I also believe this tool was instrumental in capturing it. I myself questioned the price of this "simple" lens and almost didn't but it, but while I may not understand why it costs what it does, I understand the value of it as part of my kit. I've been shooting with the 50mm f1.8G for a couple of years and never got anything close to this with it.

Sorry to be picky, but underexposed by a couple of stops might have saved the highlights. The D800 has great SNR when downsampled so you may have had the DR for it and still enough resolution to make a biggish print.

For me, part of what makes a great feeling pic is getting the highlights with soft transitions even if there is a white-out core.
