    I have had this cracking lens for a few months now. It spends a lot of time on my 6d full frame. Just a few of my own fave shots with this lens. The f/1.2 can be a noose around the neck.....trying to get perfection with this non IS lens and Parkinsons tremor when hand held.

    Brick Lane, london, Candid street shot.

    thanks Amin, a bit soft the last one....but acceptable. I think I might have been tiring. I walked around London for 13hrs that day.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Very nice Pete - you use that focal length well. The last one is da bomb for me too - I'm a sucker for wrinkled old faces. A cliche maybe, but it only got that way because it WORKS!

    thanks guys, despite no IS on the lens I seem to manage to handle it. Love it for isolating subjects.

    The last is very good, but I think that I prefer the intensity in the image of the cyclist.

    Fantastic shots all! The cyclist does it for me, though.

    Yes, great shots Pete. I think they're all excellent. The cyclist and the old guy are standouts though.
