Djeuch, how far away were you standing from your daughter in that shot?

Hard to remember - probably about 8-10 feet. It was outdoors, so it was easy to back off.

Alrighty thanks. So I guess for a full sized adult it would be a good 10-15ft

Head-to-foot, I just paced it out - probably more like 20 ft! Crop kills you in these cases.

But I still love the lens! Just a different purpose. 35L is my "next" lens, and that'll be my indoor equivalent.
