    For what its worth in no.3 I do something that a lot of other people tend to avoid - namely to shoot towards the sun. Most people tend to shoot with the sun at their back so it lights up the subject. If you shoot towards the sun it tends to light up the foreground. The subjects themselves tend to be a little shaded but then you can brighten them in post. Here is a better example.

    Here is a second set of images. They are mostly snapshots but what they have in common is that they were all taken with the Batis 85 1.8. I think it is a reasonably good illustration of how the lens performs.
