^^Agreed!! Great B&W. Love that you shot it at f/4.....shows you don't have to smear the BG to get an appealing shot! Nice job.^^

Thanks a lot :)

This thread has me about 95% convinced to sell my 50 1.8 and get the 85 instead, especially for what I shoot. Great shots from everyone.

I was looking to buy the 50 until I happened upon this thread. The look and feel was just a little cleaner on this lens than the 50. I also have a 30mm prime so I am covered pretty well.

Appreciate your post, thinking I'm going to do the same right down to the Sigma 30 1.4 - just waiting for it to hit that ~$290 price point again.

Sig 30/Canon 85 is an outstanding duo on crop bodies. I used it for a long time.
