hi calebk, is the 1st pic of the lang zai you? hahaa, nice b&w.
I like the 2nd photo: beauty and the beast..very nice, sharp, good bokeh, and her smile captures the happy ambience.

btw are those fotos taken wif 70-300 isusm or 70-200 f4?
tks for sharing.
1st pic: a friend of mine, definitely not anyone too famous, shot with 135mm f/2L
2nd pic: both friends of mine, I think it's rather disrespectful of you to label one "the beast", shot with 85mm f/1.8

These were put up as examples to show that there is plenty of stuff to shoot with telephoto ranges, indoors.

Hi fz, tks for sharing. I like the monkey, sharp details but the snake foto looks soft. any PP done on the monkey?

would have got this 70-300 is usm if its priced more reasonably about SGD$800+. I figured$1k+ way too overpriced for such slow lens.

both are sharpened using picasa.... i think you should be able to get it at 800+ now.. i bought it at $950 as year ago.

I just bought this lens for $59 a discounted price when bought together with Cannon 1000D Kit at Courts.

I do believe the lens you just purchased is the 75-300 f/4-5.6 III, not the lens in discussion.

haha. paisay calebk, meant as compliment the lady, but forgot that its disrespectful to the man, my apologies. No wonder so sharp, those 2 lens are super sharp: but I need longer focal length, so 70-300ISUSM, 28-300tamron, 120-400sig, 100-300sig,150-500sig,tok28-400 all on my wishlist, would grab whichever has a price slash cos some of those lens are super old models: hopin for a clearance sale... :)

Oh, lots of stuff:




Candids, headshots, portraits, stage, the list goes on, it can be almost anything and everything were an isolated subject and compressed background is desired.
Hey Calebk, btw, this friend of yours, is he Sammy?
