I could only spare 5 minutes tonight & the lighting/location was less than ideal but I'm so thrilled with this lens already- it's sharp & the bokeh is to die for! Nothing will ever replace my primes (they're sharper by nature) but I think a zoom with a fixed aperture would be a good addition, especially for sessions with a family. Here's the very quick pictures I took of Benjamin tonight:
Again, BACK UP!!! (And shoot less crooked.) Everyone say it with me... back up, Heather!
Note: this lens is a monster! I mean it is HUGE & HEAVY! I plan on renting another zoom soon that is smaller (24-70mm f/2.8) to compare but I may just have to lift more weights & deal with this current lens. I rented from aperturent.com their service has been perfect! Plus, they have a location in Atlanta so I could pick it up & not pay shipping. Yippee!
