[1/320s, f5.6, ISO 10000]
Dave, that's quite impressive at ISO 10000, you can still see detail in the hair and WB is nice... and DO NOT drop that lens

Thanks, Rick. I'm not really satisfied with the WB, though--she looks a bit too orange. Did I mention that it was hand-held? Thanks for the tip about not dropping it

He's pushing 90 but I still can't get my Dad to pose for a sensible portrait.
I just love this one.

So I haven't had a whole lot of time to use my F50 f1.7 yet during the day, but I did use it this past weekend at night. Even at ISO 1600, I thought these shots came out okay. I was also playing around with the whole TV and movie cropping idea in the last 2 images.

Ignore the goofiness, he was just pretending not to know anything about laser safety because we are in a class called Lasers and Applications. He was not shining it in his eye nor was he trying to do so. But he is another forum member... (Tatertot444)

x-posted to the pet thread, this shot reminds me of a formal portrait. It is Earl Grey on top of a bookcase, sort of a captive subject since I am blocking his escape route!
