Lens: Tamron 70-200 2.8 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Omaha Nebraska ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F3.2

Man this Tamron 70-200 2.8 is something. The focus speed is pretty blazing on the k-5. Pictures seem to have more vibrance, pleasing colors than the sigma 85mm 1.4. With the light gathering ability and reach it's a joy to use. The bokeh is probably the best i've seen behind the sigma 85 I use.

#1 and 4 are great results Atiim.
Sharp and with very pleasant bokeh.
Good framing too.
A bit of PP to add punch to the portraits would make these shots shine.
Well done and thanks for showing us.

Yeah, the PP still scares me a little. I'm always afraid to put too much punch in them for fear of compromising something. Then I see a photo processed masterfully by someone else and I feel bad. I might ask for some help.

No worries mate.
The trick is to not overdo it, and to know when it is too much, constantly looking at before and after manipulations to see if your effects are not going overboard.

Very nice shots. I think a little more fill light is required in a couple (esp. the one with both girls) but a job well done.

That lense is on my to-buy list so won't be long When trying it out I also found the AF to be more that adequate and certainly not noisy in the slightest (though not silent).
