I have been shooting with this new lens for the last 4 weeks and so far took more than 4,500 pictures, mostly @f/1.4 !
This is my very first f/1.4 lens and the first outings were not very easy for me because of the very shallow DOF wide open.
The first week, I had extremely low keepers rate and had to find new settings on my cameras to improve the accuracy of the AF when shooting at f/1.4.
I have used this lens for a large variety of subjects : nature & wildlife, candid kids portrait, general shooting, etc.
I bought this 85/1.4 to be able to shoot most of my subjects at 200 ISO (the native sensitivity of my camera's sensor) and without flash.
This 85/1.4 lens is known as a portrait lens, but for me this is more versatile than that and I now use it as a walk-around lens.
So far, I'm more than happy with its general performances. Now, I'm so comfortable with this small/fast lens that I've already sold my trusted big 70-200 VRI !
Please feel free to post here your pictures taken with this lens.
