is that a heart-shape at the centre of the cake?

Nice shot. Maybe up the reds a bit to make the heart stand out more. ;)

My awesome wife bought me this lens for Valentine's Day and I finally got a chance to take a few pics at lunch today. As much as I like my 28 f1.8 I was a little nervous about getting another non-L lens just because the 28 is more of an f2 vs. an actual f1.8 lens. The 85 on the other hand is way better than I expected. The sharpness and DOF are wonderful.

I thought it fitting with so many dog pictures here that my first post be of my miniature Beagle. Converted in LR3, Camera Neutral, Bright 50, Cont 25, re-sized with zero sharpening at any point... even with the compression of the upload they still look great!!!

Both shots are ambient light with 1D3, ISO 1600, f1.8, 1/160, no noise reduction.

Don't ever be worried about a Canon lense just because it doesn't have a red ring around it! It's all great quality, especially the 85mm f/1.8, I looooove my copy! The only lense in my collection I can say for sure I will never sell.

Unless of course, I strike it rich and can afford the f/1.2!

Ways like smaller, lighter, faster focusing (non-electronic FTM), affordable :)
Many ways, but not all.

Can't wait to join the 85mm crew tomorrow. I just sold my 50mm f1.4 when I found out the 85mm f1.8 is a ring type USM. Picking one up brand new tomorrow for $320 w/ ET65III and a Hoya UV filter.

I know this is an old post, but where did you get that deal?
