Having looked through this thread and the superb images I'm getting very tempted by the DA*55. I don't do portraits but was quite happy of this one of daughter and dog with the Sigma 50.
Thats a beautifully captured moment Mark! Added you on flickr too, you have an excellent photostream


And one for the thread-

Thanks for the kind word, guys! I am shooting a lot more portraits with these old primes now that I went to the dark side with the nex-5n. Stand by for Leica Summilux 50mm Asph, the lens that is going to magically transform me into a good photographer!

Many many lovely shots here - I should go through this thread and give out lots of "likes" for the fantastic efforts.

Nice shot! How do you like the lens? It's on my short list if I can't find a Tak or M at a reasonable price

Thanks! I love the Rokinon. It's great for the price. It does a nice job wide open or nearly wide open, with the expected pf in bright, high contrast situations. I haven't really done much with it stopped down. I think 2.8 is as far as I've taken it, and there it is razor sharp. I find that it provides a very slightly darker exposure wide open than my M 50 f/1.4, but it's not a big deal. I'd love to have the Tak or M 85 1.8, but I couldn't find one I could afford. And this is an A lens, which is convenient.

Someday I'd like to get my hands on a Takumar 105 f/2.8. It seems to make for very natural looking photos.
