Does anyone use the Sigma 30 f/1.4 for shooting seniors? If so, could you post some samples? I don't know if this should have been placed under the lens section, but I thought I might catch more Senior photog's here. Thanks!

It is perhaps a bit wide for general use as a portrait lens, but would be OK for an environmental or group portrait.

I'd be more interested in using a 50mm , 85mm and 70-200 for best image quality and versatility - and I've got all 4 of the lenses i mention. My 85 1.8 is the newest and I get a real buzz from using it, but my 70-200 has given me some of my favourite shots.

shooter.. there is nothing wrong with the sigma.. i actually like it over the 50mm.. granted you have o get a tiny bit closer.. but i like the images from the sigma more than i do from the canon.. i think they are sharper, and a little bit more contrasty.

That's just cruel. Just because they're old doesn't mean they need to be shot. What problem is that going to solve?

attempt at funny biz has made me chuckle. i would think a 30 would make you be a little to close for headshots but heck i don't know.

Thanks everybody. I'm thinking about using the 85 1.8 for headshots and the 30 for full-body shots. vgeek, body shots from the 30 shouldn't be fatal...but I see your point :)
