Great shots - those staring eyes are unusual.

Thanks - I think the eyes are a combinaton of her being 'at work' and me picking out the shots where I managed to focus on them ;).

I love this lens for the bokeh I can get from it:

Don't think I've ever heard anyone praise the bokeh of the 100-400, until today that is. :lol:

Funny you should say that because practically every course or book I have read talk about the bokeh you can get with long focal lengths and separating your subject from the background. I thought that was fairly common knowledge.

I think you just strengthened my point. Bokeh can be achieved with any lens (with proper positioning and separation of the subject from its background).

I've heard people liking/loving the bokeh from fast primes, partly because wider aperture would require less distance/separation from the background for easier isolation. Partly due to different aperture blade shapes. I can't recall a time that anyone "loved" the 100-400 for the bokeh. Obviously, "per common knowledge" (and as demonstrated by you), it's possible to get the blur. And I just made the observation that this could be one of a handful of times, if not the first, that anyone said those very words in reference to the 100-400. That's all.

Well I bow to your obvious greater knowledge of photography. I also concede to the greater amount of time you apparently have to prove a point that seems to be very important to you and for which to me is completely meaningless. I withdraw my comment that I love the bokeh from the 100-400. Now you can find another post to prove your superior knowledge :)

I see you've once again missed the point, let me try to be a bit clearer. Your need to prove my subjective observation incorrect I think would rub most people the wrong way, no matter what side of the bed they got up on. I am going to block your posts now because, to be blunt, while I am sure that you're a fine upstanding individual, I find you annoying and I am sure my subjective evaluation of your personality is just as appealing to you as your observations are to me. So lets not waste anymore keystrokes or bandwidth and instead lets just go out and take some photos :)

Easy guys....neither of you is wrong in any way. I am sometimes surprised by the pleasant bokeh this lens can produce as well, even though I know exactly how it can be achieved, but the 5.6 sticks in my head and I am going "this cannot be". On the other hand, I don't recall anybody praising this lens for it either, most likely due to the 5.6 stickiness as mentioned above. So, there you have it.... :D

Cheers.

Not that it matters since Chiefy has "blocked" me. But if I was looking to pick a fight with my initial comment, I would have used the :rolleyes: instead of :lol:.

It was simply an observation that I made and then he became super sensitive/defensive about it; first citing that he thought it was common knowledge as practically every course and book, etc...

I have no issues with this lens. Heck, I'm in this thread because I own it and I find it super versatile and sharp enough for most usages.

Oh well, doesn't matter. Que sera sera.
