      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.

      a few of mine wide open with an 85mm f/1.4D, it's definitely one of my favorite lenses.

When shooting at such large apertures it's important to choose AF points yourself and not let the camera decide what it wants to focus on (which I think might be the issue?)

      Here's one I did a week or two ago, 85mm f/1.4D wide open (she was keeping her eyes on a friend dressed as Santa )

      Thank you for the advice...I understand what you mean and I let the AF point focus on his chest rather than his face.

      Beautiful pic btw.

      Thanks a lot! Fast wide and objects seem to go well. Which 25? It looks like it may be a classic by the bokeh

      One last from a friends wedding I refused to shoot lol. This is my friend. The bride. Flickr has crunched it oops. Same combo

      it's one of those really cheap 25mm CCTV/cine lenses.

      Lately I use the 35/1.4 less and the rx1 more. It's f2 but renders so differently and well, the effect most look for when using 1.4 is more visible with the rx1

      Zeiss pop for sure.

      I still love my D700 I'd love to replace it in the next year or so but I'm not crazy about the options out there... the D800 just seems like overkill with the crazy mp/file sizes, the D600 is way too far of a step down (the max flash sync speed being so low kills it for me as does the small size and feel of it), and well the D4 is way out of my price range so I'm left with finding a used D3s which I'd love if the used ones didn't still go for nearly $3k yea so I'm thinking the D700 will be sticking around for quite a while

      one with the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 (everything they say about this lens is true, it rocks, probably the best 35 out there right now)
