thanks Jordan...stopped down extra sharp flowers are easy to do and easily found on here. I like to go the other direction in AV mode. But I also realize its not everyone's thing.

^^Nice shots. Just curious, what stop ND filter did you have, to be able to achieve the SS's and f-stop used, especially at that time of day?

thanks! i got the singh-ray variND (2-8stops). i had the 3 and 6stops but the variND comes in handy since I can change easier without having to swap filters. expensive but its worth it for me since i shoot often between f1.2-f2.8 using flashes during the day :)

Thanks for the info. Might have to invest in one, since I love using the 85L for model shoots. Outdoors in FL, though, it's always bright as heck. This may just make all the difference. Do you balance them out with a gray card? Or is that not necessary when using the vari-ND?

Now, I just need more skills. :lol:

no gray card even though i do have a whibal card. i also had 1/2 CTO gel on the flash to give it some warmth. i feel you on that FL sunshine, i deal with it too. Im in orlando, not too far from st augustine :)

Cool. Now I know two of you dudes down there. You and Reyno. I'll hit ya up, once I'm back in the area. A few models I've been meaning to work with, I just don't get much time on weekends, to go down there. Soon enough...!

Where do you source your models, just curiously? MM? or somewhere else?

Ah yes, another thread that led to no good. I no longer dislike the 70-200mm f2.8 IS thread because I have since picked up the lens.

Likewise I will probably hold less animosity for this thread after I scrape enough pennies together and grab an 85L.

And all because of this damnable thread.

bw! Im sorry this made me laugh out loud. This is exactly how I feel. I want this lens so badly, I got my financial aid money and this is the first purchase I think I will be making with it.

Just don't go around that "5D Classic Admirers" thread -- they are a bunch of lunatics anyway, but when they get to talking about how the 85L behaves on the 5D, kinda magical, well, I swear there is foam coming out of their mouths...it's scary!
