    Default Samples from my new DA*55 f1.4

    Here are some quick shots taken with my new DA*55 f1.4. I just had to give it a whirl to see what it was like. :-)

    All taken with the K20D + DA*55 f1.4 and AF540FGZ with Gary Fong Lightsphere.
    No sharpening applied whatsoever.

    I am *very* impressed with the image quality.


    All of my youngest daughter who just had her hear blonded, so she was a willing participant. :-)

    ISO400 f4.5

    Nice! Is your youngest daughter a part time model also?

    Hey Lance, those are some excellent photos! Especially the last one. But I think it's not the lens or camera, it's your daughter who made these photos look beautiful

    This is a very nice lens. I'm sure you will enjoy using it especially for portrait shots.

    Thank you very much for your nice comment about my daughter. She is not a model, though.

    Hi Lance B
    Beautiful daughter and beautiful shots too!
    Do you have a 50 F/1.4 too? Would be good to compare them side by side.
    And with f/1.4 it would do it justice with a deeper background rather than a wall.

    btw, its good to have a ready made model at home to try out your shots..my kids are starting to outgrow the "ok take me" phase and into the "don't take photos" phase.

    I do have the FA50 f1.4. I have not compared them together, but from the image samples I have seen elsewhere there is little difference betwqeen them other than that the DA*55 is quite a bit more contraty, especially at the f1.4 to f4 end. Bokeh and sharpness are similar.

    And with f/1.4 it would do it justice with a deeper background rather than a wall.
    Yes, we needed to get away from the wall a little more, but we did have limited space.

    btw, its good to have a ready made model at home to try out your shots..my kids are starting to outgrow the "ok take me" phase and into the "don't take photos" phase.
    It was lucky that my daughter had her her just blonded at the nairdresser that day and was willing to have her photo taken. Usually, if I get my camera out to take family photos, they all run away from me!
