I had the privilege to shoot 3 models yesterday at Eau Claire, the weather was cooperative with relative warm temparture and the sun warming everything up.
A friend was also kind enough to lend me his 85L II to test out during the shoot.
My opinion, it's a fantastic lens, really meant for portraits and wide open at f/1.2 you get stunning background separation.
However I noticed a lot of fringing and wasn't impressed with the slow AF.
Here is a portrait at f/1.2 which gives its Sartorialist look.
The bokeh is comparable to the 135L although some may disagree but I find the 135L's bokeh better.
Jen should model for Le Chateau, she looks stunning on this purple coat from Le Chateau.
Next is Elle with her red coat and dark hair, her look was saying Street Fashion all over, so we decided to walk towards the Sheraton hotel when I saw these Yellow cabs parked on front. I asked one of the drivers if we could shoot inside the cab for a few minutes and here are the results.
Then it was another Elle with her amazing sense of fashion, everything just worked well together, her pink top, purple stockings and bag.
