Amazing shots guys!

I just did the unthinkable and ordered one of these bad boys. My birthday just passed and this was my present. I have dreaming of this lens for a few years now. Enjoyed the hell out of my samyang 85 1.4 on a crop sensor. I have a felling ill be in heaven with this one on my ff 6d. It will only be used for personal work, hobby, girlfriend shots etc so this was a huge investment for me, around 1200 pounds. I hope i get my money back in amazing shots. Thats all i want. :) It was a tie between this one and canon 70-200 2.8 L IS II, but after I tried it on my camera I was left a little underwhelmed. Dissapointed that the tamron equivalent was sharper and had more constrast. Plus the size, the weight... the 85 came on top, if that makes any sense.

Hope I visit the thread soon with some shots. Im still in awe at what some of the guys post here!

I am amazed at the size and weight of the lens. WOW. Even the filter is huge. LOVE the sharpness. The AF is not THAT bad, but I wish the lens wouldnt extend when focusing, minor tidbit. Also, its the first ime im holding it, is the focusing ring suppose to change "gripness" when actually moving the glass inside and when not? It feels a little odd to me.

I cant wait to take it outside this weekend, and have some portrait fun with my gf, maybe some flash action.

This is one from last year. Sky is blown out, but not much I could do on that day. Just happen to like the shot.

The focusing ring is not mechanically/physicall​y connected to the auto focusing motor, so it rotates freely. Instead, it is part of an electrical focus-by-wire system that detects rotation through electronic sensor. This is why when the camera is off, rotating the focus ring will not change focus. When it is on, it will.

fantastic portrait


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Why is your box so different from mine? Different country, different box?

I have no idea. At first I thought it is because I got the leather pouch and hood included, but you also get those in the white box version. Mine is made in vietnam if that makes any difference.

The different colour boxes are because White = Older and Silver = Newer

Example:-

Cameras & Lenses made BEFORE Sept 2013 will have the white box

Cameras & Lenses made AFTER Sept 2013 will have the silver box


6D - 24L II - 50L - 85L II - 135L
