yeah, i kind of like the hair, too. The pics are wonderful, but the pp effect is so strong it's coming close to looking a bit extreme. I think the hair helps pull it back a little and makes it look a bit more real and natural. Just my $.02

Weekend with our baby boy Mathias. He tried the swing for the first time and had a blast! Perfect chance to put the Sigma 85mm to a good use. I LOVE this lens:

Just a few shots from end of 2010. The time when I fell in love with this lens.

I received my 85 1.4 today, very happy that it came so soon after ordering yesterday. However, its DOA and makes banging noise when it focuses. :( sending it back this afternoon for another.

That's exactly the same issue, the sound on the video doesn't sound as harsh but I expect it was the same. Horrible noise, sounded like it was going to blow up :o

sent back now, the said they had another due in so they would ship it out once they got it. :(
