Who agrees with me about Stflbn's pictures??

Longer lens... large aperture.

Meaning 70-200 f2.8 lens using it at 200mm or so at f2.8 / f4'ish. 150mm to 200mm primes also can give that effect.

assuming you mean something like this, which was shot at 150mm f5.

This one is 180mm at f3.5

and this one is 100mm at f2.8

Sony A99 | A77
Sigma 24-70 2.8 | 50 1.4 | 150 Macro
Tamron 70-200 2.8 USD
Sony 70-400 G
Vivitar 35 1.4 | 85 1.4

I really, really like those.  And I don't know if you use RAW or JPEG files, but I very much like the colors I get from my A57 and what I see from the A77.

Does everyone else love the Sony skin tones and colors when outdoors?   There is no bad red push, no cartoon colors, only very nice results.

Don't worry - be happy!
