Long time no blog…

Just bought a nice lens, Nikon AF-S 85mm F/1.4, decided to put it through some real life testing. What’s best than taking photos of your own kids?






KKK_9970Really sharp lens…and at F1.4, the depth of field is just amazing! Still, you can still sense the SHARP focus point it delivers!


This is a 100% crop from the above FULL RESOLUTION photo.


For lens with such shallow depth of field, you have to make sure that your camera matches it well. Meaning to say that there should be no front focus or back focus issue when shooting. The good thing about Nikon D3s is that there is a focus fine tune in the camera, so I actually did fine tune focus the lens with my D3s before shooting. The value I got is -14 on my camera in order to have perfect focus point as per my camera sensor.
