Wow, I honestly have yet to see bad contributions from this glass.. I would love to own it but I just wouldn't be able to justify dropping $3k+ and have it possibly break and not having any reliability :shock: But seriously, all these images are dope!

I agree with airbutchie, that water droplets shot is really good ulijens :)

Keep them coming guys! There's one for sale locally, luckily I'm broke or else I'd be in a fist fight with myself for getting this lens :)

I think so... Buttkicker (Chris) and cwood (Christopher) haven't posted anything, of late... Just us for now, good friend... Anyhoo... I hope all is well with you!!!

:D

I'm usually one-and-done posting to these types of threads - but I'm so in love with this lens that I can't help peaking back to see what other people have done. I can hardly believe it... but this is becoming one of my most used portrait lenses.

Here is a sequence from a surprise proposal. This was shot in the DUMPING rain at 2PM. I used a 2x to and shot wide open (400mm F3.5) at ISO1600 just to get 1/200 shutterspeed. The bride-to-be actually looked straight at the camera a couple of times because she thought I was taking pictures of ducks (that was my cover story) and she could not figure out why someone would be out in that weather photographing ducks :)

It seems hard to believe - but this lens comes with me to most of my photo shoots now. Selling the 300mm F2.8 to fund this lens was the best move I ever made with my gear.
