Happy Birthday in that case! I hope you're gonna take the opportunity to plonk her in the middle of the garden and say right, you hold this, now don't move whilst daddy takes a picture :) That's my favourite bit about the photo above, you can tell on her face she is thinking 'can I move yet, wish he would get on with it'!!

LOL...we used to do the shots like that...now she fights it too much. I don't get to take posed pictures of her anymore, she won't have it...I have learned to catch her in regular activities or when she isn't looking. I guess I pointed the camera at her too much when she was younger, I thought it would make her be very eager to have her picture taken...it kinda backfired.

^^^yeah, kids have a hard time sitting still! If I can't get it done quickly...they've moved on!

....this is a great lens, just got it a few weeks ago, and realized on some shots that I had to MFA it.

Here's one from mother's day a few weeks ago...I took about 40 shots in 5 minutes and used my "this is exciting" voice:

Did some artwork for a DJ friend with this lens. I did get within the very closest this lens can focus. More than once have I been tempted to get the 100mm macro instead... Does anyone else find they wish they could get just 10cm closer?

Cool shot. Like the pose, lovely smile, blurred lights in the background.

Made myself a fluorescent circular tube light to shoot through for portraits. Had my brother in law sit in for me. This needs a backlight to add some separation. That's next on the DIY list.

Just a couple candids from this weekend. Really enjoying this lens for its sharpness, compact size, fast focusing, and great price...lots to like. One of the biggest shortcomings for me has been its less than generous minimal focusing distance. If they could improve the MFD, this lens would stay on the camera a bit more.
