^^^ NICE

I'm thinking of picking up this lens for my 6D. I had it years ago for a 50D back when I was learning and had no clue about shutter speed, depth of field, etc. I was frustrated and sold it.

Anyway, I was awarded a three-day press pass to a celebrity convention and have all access. Look at my signature and you'll see that I'm lacking in good glass.

There's no guarantee that I can use flash and the convention will be indoors.

It all depends on how close you will be to your subjects at the convention...85 could be long enough, and then again it could be too long...you already have the 40 2.8, and a camera that is very capable at higher ISO, so you don't need anything shorter than 85 really...


hi from a fellow Atlanta photog...BTW...is that convention here in town?

Hi Dan, all this time I thought Mermaids were just a fable, then you went out and not only found one, but post photographic evidence too? :shock:
Lovely Image. ;)


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

I just picked up a used copy for $260, and it has a couple specks inside, but that's okay. It's not an easy lens for me. I know everyone else finds it easy (or so it seems), but I have to re-learn how to use it properly.

I'm surprised at how tight it is even on a full frame camera. I had it long ago on a 50D and had to step back a lot, but even on my 6D I'm having to foot zoom my way back a bit.

This should be fun.

My nephew yesterday in Senoia, Georgia (checking out the new set of The Walking Dead).

This one's funny because they built this little church, lit it on fire, put the fire out and..... now it's ready. ;)
