One week ago in Berlin. Pretty nice weather conditions for late autumn.

Just purchased one of these for my son's upcoming basketball season (9 and 10 year olds playing in an elementary school gym). Pretty excited, should get here on Friday :)

i just purchased this lens.. dont know if its the lens or me.. but i find it a bit tricky at 1.8 trying to nail focus
so far i do like the lens very much , just , yeah i dont have the steadiest hands for 1.8

Did you ever get the focus down? I also own this lens and have trouble nailing focus but I'm also as green as the come to photography. But I practice everyday till the battery is dead and still have problems.

Since you stated you are green to photography...shooting with fast primes is a whole new game...especially shooting wide open. DoF is so shallow, any movement by you or the subject can result in OOF images if you are shooting on "OneShot" Focus mode., combine that with the 85mm focal length, its not hard to end up with soft or shaky images. Try using AI Servo, and stop down to practice a bit. Practice...it will come...and it will be worth it.

Nice pics, however a basic concept in portrait photography is trying to avoid light patches on the face unless it has specific function like shadows of a lace umbrella etc.
