And my first close-ups with the lovely original 85/1.4 I bought from Clyde (of my Zachary of course lol).

Really liking the lens - had it before and loved it, but that was in A700 days - its a whole new lens to me now!!

The second is a bit off focus - and I decided it did not matter. The first I should have perhaps stopped down further, but I again decided it did not matter - the eyes are "in" and the extra softness I think does not degrade the image much - if at all. I could be wrong. ;)


F2.
Zachary by Mike Nash, on Flickr


F1.4 - totally missed focus :(.


Very best regards


Mike

You've done well to get both eyes in focus at 85/1.4. That's difficult!
Really like this one.

The second does look like even the eye in focus is actually a bit off focus!
That's the challenge with and 85/1.4, for sure.
More Dyxumer, less photographer.

Thanks Sashi! The Black and white was F2. Its a shame about missing on the colour one (F 1.4) - but I still like it. Might print a 5X7, should be OK.

Great captures Mike. Indeed the off focus on the colour is not 'destroying' it. I would have kept it too. But with this patient model and your new tool you may get many more opportunities for a remake. A 85/1.4 is not in my collection, yet...

Thanks Fred! I am loving the 85. Quite stoked that my first portrait posted with it (the Zachary B&W) just got Explored on Flickr - always a nice thing if otherwise meaningless. lol
