A photo from a recent day trip to Macau. I was walking through the crowds... and boy was it crowded.

This photo was taken up at James Woodhill Park at Rocky Butte, in Portland, OR. That's Mt. Hood in the background.

this is a 100% crop @ f3.2, available window light from the right, hand held, Min. Focus Distance (about 4 ft.) This lens (mine was a demo) cost me $490 last week. It is built like a tank and clean as brand new. The auto focus while acurate is not as fast as USM but for most occassions fast enough. No,it's not the 70-200mm F/2.8 L, but at a fraction of the cost it's a helluva lens. Steve B.

Havent had time to post but I got the lens a few weeks ago. Definitely a pro-style build and the tripod collar, although you cant remove it, is a welcome addition. Here is a quick snap taken at 135mm@2.8, ISO 1600 in available light. The bokeh is soft and creamy. The background is my kitchen with a bunch of junk on it, which of course you cannot see :D

nice job Dengar, this lens i think is what we used to call in hot rodding back in the day(60's/70's) a real sleeper! I find even with the 1.4 Kenko on it is still very sharp!
Good luck with yours I notice your taking the plunge into portrait work,good luck,keep posting and let us know how it goes. Steve B.

After coming to the realization that I will probably be shooting with a crop camera for a while, I've decided to start building up my crop-lens setup. I just bought a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 from eyusuf, a poster from this thread, and I'm thinking about getting this lens to compliment it. They sell new now for $540, which is pretty reasonable compared to the alternative choices, but do you think that this lens will perform up to the quality of the 17-50? After a while I would like to also spring for a 11-60 f/2.8, but I think this lens would get more use, so it's my next step.
I'm leaning towards it right now, but I just thought I would check to see if anyone else has opinions on it. Thanks!

I'm thinking about joining the AT-X 535 club, the focal lenght is right up my alley and judging by all of your samples seems to be a good piece of glass...albeit crop glass.

Still pondering...

In Oregon, local vineyards are full of grapes, all ready for picking. I snapped some photos of them while we were out wine tasting this past weekend.

I just traded my 85 f/1.8 on the forum for this. I can't wait to get it!

Hmmm... I don't know... I like my 85 f/1.8 too. I admit, I don't use it on my 10D... it's a great lens on a FF camera body and produces great photos.

Here are a couple of more samples from my 50-135 f/2.8...

At 75mm, Av=f/2.8, Tv=1/320s, ISO=400, Exp. Comp=-1

IMAGE: http://geneman88.zenfolio.com/img/v2/p39628564-5.jpg

Both photos shot with 10D in RAW format. Post processed with Aperture + Nik Software.

Yea, I love 85mm on full frame, but I think I'll get more use from the 50-135 on my 20d.
