Here is four more from the HD FA* 85mm, in sunnier conditions this time:









All wide open, except the last - which is at f2.5.

It's been a little quiet, so I guess it's time to show this thread some love.

This was shot this morning, handheld.




And for the detail oriented among us:

Not sure I can match some of the recent shots here yet, but a quick set from me. Poor weather again..... but here are some wide open shots:










...... And here is a couple stopped down, showing the outrageous resolution of this lens:

Here's one more of the lily bed in front of our house. This is an 18 image stack shot at f/5.

John, you have set a really high bar here. This is gorgeous stuff you are posting.
I hopefully have a portrait shoot set up for later this week with the granddaughter. If my daughter is willing to let me post here, I will.
I haven't done an honest to gawd portrait session for years. It should be fun.

You're too kind! I am not sure I have really nailed it with this lens so far but my hit rate is (slowly) improving. And I finally found my 82mm CPL which will help with these botanical and woodland shots.

I love the stack, Wheatfield. I need to get the tripod out again!

I honestly think the lens is fantastic and I could spend years trying to master it! Here's a few more from me:









Rather than spam the thread with every photo I take, I have made a Flickr album with my shots from this lens:

I will try to start a flickr group too (if no-one else did).
