It says 85mm in EXIF, but it's actually the M50 f/1.4 (at f/1.4). I had forgotten to change the focal length when I switched lenses. This is Bill Mallonee, known best from his time in Vigilantes of Love, at a small performance at some friends' house.




This is the Rokinon 85/1.4 wide open:

Whoa! I love Bill's music! Last time I saw him, his hair was really short and his face was bare. I guess that was awhile ago...

Just so happens he's at Eddie's Attic in Decatur, Georgia tonight. I may catch him in Athens before the month is out. Thanks for posting!

Yeah, he had short hair and no beard the last time I saw him, too. I think it was 2006. I feel like he looks more like himself this way, if that makes any sense. He's a fascinating person - there's a story behind every song - and, of course, an excellent musician.
