I think the focal point should be her eyes... it's on her forehead/hairline

I agree. Hard to do when you're dealing with a DOF of about 1 mm.

Why is it hard to do? - AF pt on eye then click.

Having owned the 50L and the 85L II I think I am able to comment here. The observation is that when you are that close to your subject (5ft), F2 on the eye is a far better choice and acts like from a DoF perspective like F1.2 at 7 feet.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

That was my point. There is little margin for error.

We are saying the same thing except at 4feet DoF is 2.5cm and at 5feet it is 4.5 cm - not 1mm.

If could be an artistic picture wanting the forehead to be the focal point but the lens takes practice and hitting the eye should have given enough DoF for the traditional 50L thin DoF look - that said, 1.4 / 1.6 is way sharper on that lens.

Good grief....I know it. It was an exaggeration to make a point. :rolleyes:

My comments aren't directed at you - they were meant to be helpful to the poster of the picture. It wasn't until I had both the 50L and the 85L that I truly understood how important getting the AF pt on the eye really was - and equally importantly, actually memorizing what the DoF actually was at certain shooting distances while at F1.2. Your 1mm comment is nearly correct when you shoot the 85 at 1.2 and MFD - ie the typical eyelash shot taken of a bride during prep - except I prefer using the 100macro at F2.8 at 1.5 feet if that is something they would like - you get 2 - 3mm and it is an easy shot with IS.
