Love that 100% crop!

So what was wrong w/the 1st copy? Thought I wanted a 100mm-ish macro prime and was sort of talked into this lens. I'm so nervous about buying this lens now tho. :ugh:

edit: I just realized based on the reflection in the lips of the 1st photo... & you were outside?!
the 1st copy was decentered and fuzzy

Yes, this really is an awesome lens. Have to say this one is my first brilliant lens and can't wait to see if the 40mm does even better.

LOL at the title of this thread!

I think that's everyone's reaction when they see that first 50-135 shot in the viewfinder. incredible lens that does portraits as good as any lens I've seen.

Not just studio. It is great on walkabouts as well. Only downside is that it is a bit heavy for the body.
just put the battery grip, spare battery on the K20D and it balances out just fine

Never seen the hair in a girl's nose.... thank you, I'll sleep well tomorrow.
I was about to say. Might wanna edit those out for the final product. As well all know, women have no nose hair...

Install the D-BG2 grip, and the whole rig balances beautifully. Some might notice increased muscle tone due to the weight of the combination
