Mike,
You're fortunate to have such a photogenic model on hand.
Beautiful set, of which my favourite is #2 with the frozen splash from the puddle. But they're all very good images. a99ii with the Minolta 85mm f1.4 is a great combo.

A good set from your son again Mike. Nice combo you used. Almost a petty that this lens is sharp at the edges of the focal plane in #1 (at the left in particular).
Although I like the splashes in #2, for me #3 is the best one. Hard to describe why though. Maybe it's the combo of Zach in that circle, the strong compact subject and the path disappearing.

When I saw the pictures, I was thinking of the 135/1.8. The Exif shows it is the Minolta 85/1.4. Judging from the OoF I would think it is at f/1.4, but the colours make me think it is at f/2 - the Exif does not show it, so, what is the f/number?

I like these pictures btw.

Thank you all very much for the kind comments!

Indeed I am quite thrilled with this first generation Minolta I bought from Clyde recently.

I had owned one years ago but traded it before I had a chance to try it on FF.


@ Joe
Yes, I am fortunate indeed to have such a willing subject! lol Thank you!

@ Fred
My own fave may be that one as well. Thank you!

@ Addy
I also thought the images here looked similar to what I get with the 135/1.8.
Thanks much for pointing out the incomplete exif - I had forgotten that happens when I link to a smaller size than the one uploaded on SmugMug.
None are taken at F1.4. Most are at F2 just as you guessed. The close one at the bridge is at F4 I believe - not at home now but will update all photos with full info tonight when I get home from work.

Very best regards


Mike
