Guys, its very late now around 1am here in Norway and I still have to sleep for tomorrow's work @ 7am. lol

There are a lot of you here asking for some portraits. I can't find a decent model, so I just took the courage to volunteer. Please bear with the bad looking model here. Just see the general picture and how the lens performs. I lit some candles for some bokeh too..

It's indoors, setup is a flash right side of the subject, shoot thru umbrella. Triggered by phottix - TTL (I'm getting too lazy to manual adjust the flash)

Camera setting: ev1/25 aperture 1.4, iso 1600, cto 1/2 gel 430ex triggered by phottix ttL thru umbrella

I asked my wife to take the shot, live view manual focused on my eyewear. you can see her at the reflection :) I hope you guys enjoy the samples.

Good night everyone


Camera Setting: ev 1/40, aperture f2.0, iso 1600, same flash settings as above

Oops, that 1.8 aperture is 1.4. Must have been really sleepy when I wrote it. Edited already

This is how I've done my simple test if the lens needs some MA... I focused on 12cm on the ruler. The same I did on my 17-40mm F4L, I needed to change 3 copies of it at the store because the first 2 copies needed more than +10 MA on 5dmkII.

This Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art - look at this:

QUOTED IMAGE

I focused exaclty at 12cm on the ruler.. :)

Great tip mate! Thank's! I will try it when I will have my Sig, which is probably in 2 weeks... :'( :'( :'(
Also, I downloaded your RAW, it's so crazy how sharp it is at 1.4, thanks.

Please, one last favor, can you take more portraits but without flash? Only natural light. If you have time off course! Thank you in advance.
Ugh I want to be you so bad!

Oh my God, MirK, you have the 6D + the 50 Art. It's what I want to buy as soon as I could.

It's really sharp at 1.4!
Can you also post some portraits without flash please?

nice

I took the lens outside for 3 hours. I really notice the AF issues. It's really there especially if I use F1.4 and the outside focus points on the 5d Mark II.. It's more accurate using the center focus.

I tried AI servo at 1.4 aperture and followed an oncoming motorcycle. It really did struggle. It's like only 1 focused shot out of 8. I took a series of shots at F5.0 and it did perfectly.

Maybe it's my camera and lens combo. This lens might perform well on 5dmark III.

But it really is so sharp if it can focus.

Spot on focus but why is the area to the left and right side of the ruler (16-18 inch area) in sharper focus than the rest?

I had to dial in +9 for one body and +14 on another.

Getting the sigma dock delivered tomorrow and i'll adjust it in that instead of the camera.
