|comment:||This is the lens I sold my Sony 1.4 / 50mm for. Mostly because of the better bokeh (imho). Having it re-chipped I can use it i.c.w. the A77. This lens is for me ideal for portraitphotography. It reminds me of a Beatles song:|
I want you... I want you so bad. She's so heavy!
The combination A900, this lens and a 1.7TC makes it an ideal 85mm f/2 combination for portraits. A little soft in the corners is no problem for portraits, so the loss of IQ due to the TC is taken for granted. Don 't use this combination since I own the Siggy 85mm f/1.4 doe portrait on FF.
