    I've had this lens for some time, but have now started getting the hang of using it. Finally started stopping it down to f/5.6 and using the inverse rule (shoot at 1/focal length) to get clear images.

    Some samples from the last shoot

    They look good and in sharp focus, Dof is about right, nice a shallow so there are no other parts of the picture in focus to distract the viewer, what was the camera?
