Re: Nikon d7500 focus yes ? on the eye ?

Alex -

This lens, like many others, is soft wide open. When you use the Nikon capture tool turn on the feature that shows you exactly where your focus point was since you have very little room for error on depth of field at this aperture. It's all very subjective, but if I had to use this lens, I would stop down to higher apperture and move in a bit closer. To see how well this works, take the glasses off and really zoom in on the eye at 100 %.

To answer your other question, yes the Sigma would be give you more separation of the subject from background. In this case, the tree is unfortunately more powerful to the composition and therefore will steal the spotlight a bit.

Good luck!
