Got myself 2 new lenses today....

Well good as new

Busterboy mentioned on another forum he was thinking of selling his Sigma 150mm macro - so I asked if he wanted to sell

Having caught him in a selling mood I prised his 50mm 1.4 away from him as well

They arrived early today but I have been too busy to play with them. So I had to take pictures of something.... meet the cat

50mm 1.4 at f1.4. Cat was under a chair in a partially lit room. If you walked through the room you would not see the black cat under the dining chair. I was amazed it could focus never mind take a picture. Not bothered about the odd colouring as you can see


Same aperture but in poor light - my Tamron 2.8 could not cope here


Then there is the Sigma macro. No bugs to play with but the test shots show the difference between f2.8 and f22 depth of field quite dramatically

F2.8


F22


Thanks Tim

Glad you like them Robert..

I have had the 85mm f/1.2 on my wish list for some time now and finally made the purchase this week. Just needed to top up the jamjar until the summer when the bugs are back in the garden..

Glad they arrived safe and well Robert. I try my best mate..


PS: There is nothing better than dealing with trustworthy honest people.

Robert is one of those people.. Thank you mate.
