Post your 85mm ƒ1.4 Photos! (ƒ1.4 ONLY!)

Post your 85mm ƒ1.4 Photos! (ƒ1.4 ONLY!)

I started a great thread about posting only 50mm ƒ1.2 photos at ƒ1.2, when I bought my first Cosina ƒ1.2 55mm, and wanted to compare it against other ƒ1.2s. (I now have a K ƒ1.2, and the excellent thread photos is causing me to upgrade to the ultimate - an A ƒ1.2!)

Well - now I just bought a generic (but supposedly excellent) $300 85mm ƒ1.4.

And of course I'm looking to buy the $1,000 FA* 85mm ƒ1.4!

I thought it would be neat if people who owned ANY 85mm ƒ1.4 would post their best photos taken ONLY at ƒ1.4!

(Since that's why we're buying these lenses and not a less expensive and easier to obtain ƒ2 or ƒ2.8 or higher!)

So anyway, I was wondering if any proud picture-snappers would post their photos taken ONLY AT 85mm ƒ1.4 (FROM ANY LENS, MAKE, or MODEL... as long as on a Pentax camera of course!)...

Thanks!

Well, I'm game. Here is one shot after midnight in a dark venue. A Vivitar 85mm at f1.4. ISO 800 on my K-10.

The only combo that comes close to getting the subject isolation I see from images with an 85mm at F/1.4 are with the canon 200mm F/2. Man I wish I had one.

Is the sigma out yet??

I took this with the Rokinon branded 85mm 1.4. This is hand held at dawn and no SR.

ZK mount, found a US based Ebay seller selling ZK Zeiss lenses at a price too good to resist, managed to grab both f1.4 Planars as well as the 25mm and 18mm Distagons.
