Jonathan, all taken in Cancún except for one of a lady in traditional white dress from the backside.
Again, all taken in Cancún wide open.





I think these guys wanna cross the very busy street. The public bus transportation there drives like miniacs. Seem to me that they compete each others to pickup fare passengers.






Taken in USA

On stage, no flash and wide open @ ISO-400. I was about 20 feet away and cropped in a little.

The Sigma 85mm, f/1.4 is more flexible, but the 135mm, f/1.8 has something special. The model is Anastasia.

Believe it or not, this 135mm kinda stuck on on the 7R2 and wouldn't want to come off.




I had a great time and the lens performed well at the Performance Art Center in San Jose.

















Long distance shot almost full crop on demand at the back stage...while the other photog was figuring his settings.

This is Keeley. She's a wonderful model, and she's also a wonderful assistant.

I love it when I find a lens that sticks to a camera. I have a lens now that hasn't come off for many weeks. You are doing beautiful work with your equipment! Enjoy!

The Sigma 135mm is a jaw dropping lens. Part of my portraiture kit alongside the Canon 35mm 1.4 L ii, 85mm 1.4 GM and EF 300mm 2.8 non is.
With the A7R2 I personally prefer the Metabones over the MC-11 because I can use continous Eye AF across the frame or change to green mode for fastest AF. With the A7R3 though the Metabones is pretty much THE way to go because it uses PDAF (under green mode) for Eye AF so it behaves very close to a native lens.

Another Keeley with the 135. (The red hair pulled into gamut.)

I really hope they release a native E-mount version of this lens; I do miss my Canon 135L, and these images look fantastic. But I'm still a bit wary about the bulk and need for an adapter.

Wonderful stuff!

Notice from the 3rd picture's extreme top and bottom corners. Sharpness from the tree barbs is rediculous for 1.8
I can shoot wide open without hesitance and not worry about CA.

I actually have one of these, but its for sale in a local shop (on commission). It's a fantastic lens, but so big and heavy. Lugging it around is actually one of the main reasons I sold my Canon gear and switched to Sony! However, if it doesn't sell at the price it is listed at now, I'll probably pull it out and try it again rather than reducing the price further. Maybe using it on an A7m3 will reawaken the love I initially had for it...
