Some people do. I don't generally, unless it's a lopped off head of something that you "played with" to take a photo.

Where did he say he "played with" it? Looks like he butchered an animal for food and took a picture of the aftermath. Could it be considered controversial? Sure, but I don't think there is anything wrong with him finding art in something that might be controversial...a lot of art is.

Love this shot! What a cool kid!

Got my 30mm 1.4 this week and love it. Only been playing from the sofa in front of the tv but it seems excellent at low light.

Can't wait to get out and play!

Thanks!! That's my little Wes - he's 5 months now and very cool!

Enjoy the lens. Great for low light, but also getting a shallow DOF outside for more "pop"

Someone's signature said "A photo a day keeps the boredom away". This is my motto for this shot taken on a quick walk up the hill with the pup this evening. A little dark, but after all it was getting dark!

It's considered ethical not to play with dead animals, or to photograph them.

I agree not to play with dead animals, but I don't see it wrong to photograph them to a certain extent I guess... What about dead fish?

Who said I played with it? I didn't even touch it once it was chopped off until I discarded it. I apologize if I offended you... This chicken was far dead before it was prepared to eat. There are many cultures that actually leave the head on and eat it as well...

I have a 13 week old, although he about the same size as Wes, the little monster!! Half the reason I got this lens is to take some nice family portraits with it. Low light is excellent, I can tell already!

Cheers,

Will

I think this lens is sharp enough wide open. However, I often shoot at 1.8 if I want the best combination of critical sharpenss and shallow DOF.

I just sent in my 30mm 1.4 with my 60d to sigma for lens calibration. It's nerve-racking to think about all the bumps it will encounter on its trip to the factory and back :(

did it have focus issues? please keep us, or me, updated on the process and your experience with them as I'd like to send mine in soon. I don't really have many gripes with mine but sometimes i don't think its as sharp as it can be @ 1.4

Exactly why I prefer Canon, and it's neighborly service location in California

Reading most of this thread has made me more anxious to receive mine. I recently got one off this board and its not expected to arrive until early next week.:( One of the disadvantages of living on an island I guess, well that and outrageous shipping costs.
