This photo was at f4.5. This photo demonstrates that if you come too close to the face with this lens, there will be some distortion around the nose area. I would use a 150/2.8 instead.

btw I don't have an opinion on the SR yet and how well it works. I do have an opinion about the focusing -- and that is that I ended up using manual focus for these shots because the focus points on the 645D are too small for portrait applications. And if you shoot at 2.8 the DOF is too thin a slight movement away from the focus point will yield "front" focusing which I have seen too much with my shots.

Beautiful portraits, thanks for sharing!

Maybe it would be useful to merge both of the threads about the 90mm Macro; so all the pictures of this lens can be found in one thread?
