Samyang 85mm f/1.4 Aspherical "Samylux". It's sharp wide open(equal or better than the 85L), renders very nicely and has very creamy, smooth bokeh, like the Sigmalux but at 85mm.

I recently got a Sigma 50/1.4 and the color doesn't compare! Also, the autofocus is bugging me (not specifically the autofocus on the Sigma, but autofocus lenses generally).


Gear: Canon 5D Mk II | Olympus 21/3.5 | Zeiss Distagon 35/2 | Sigma 50/1.4 ASPH | Samyang 85/1.4 ASPH | Canon 100/2.8 L Macro

I'd have to say its a toss up between the 24-70 f/2.8 and the 70-200 f/2.8 IS, these two as a combo on two bodies make one mean team that covers about 99% of what we shoot

C'mon and hang with me this week at EAA AirVenture. I'll have a MkIII + 70-200 on one shoulder, a 40D + 500 f/4L on the other and a 24-70 in a back vest pouch! ;)

my 70-200 2.8 IS has made me look pretty good for a hack with a XSI


Nikon D850 and a bunch of stuff, I have learned a lot here when I was shooting Canon, staying to keep learning..."Every time I set up I learn something new".
