    i got the lens in friday, but was too busy til today to try it out. we were at my in-laws house for dinner, so i snapped a few of my son before and my daughter after. this is my first time posting some photos i've taken for c&c, so lay it on. :o edit - all i've done is some minor adjustments in lightroom, i will run do a little more editing before i print some of these.

    the full sized ones don't look grainy, but the smaller ones i exported from lightroom do. :dunno: they should all have been shot at iso 100 on a 30d.

    thanks, that means a lot coming from a pro :cool:

    thanks :cool:

    i think i had it a little too wide open on 2 (but first time out with a new fast aperture lens, you have to try it wide open :mamoru: )

    and with her attitude she has now (at 3) she's going to be hell in 10 years :o

    thanks again :cool:

    that was at the end of his party and i had been bouncing my 550ex to take the photos, but i decided to grab my 285 and cactus triggers for that shot. i set the 285 on the small flat stand on the corner of the table and happened to get that shot that was much, much better than the ones i took bouncing the flash. once again off camera flash > on camera flash.

    :o yeah my daughter is cuter than my son, but i think my son has a better eyes for photos, they just seem to pop more.

    thanks, its tough to get the focus just right with a 1 year old that won't sit still, and in this regard the much faster and better focusing 1.4 >>>>>>>>>>>> the 1.8 :o
