This first one is me, taken by my caregiver. Both were shot with my Canon 7, on Fujicolor 100




Lovely photos as always, Colton! Keep shooting it and see how you get along. My guess is that at minimum focus wide open, the depth of field is so shallow that it's hard to tell the difference between back focus (camera error) or barely missing focus (user error).

In my experience, when you do nail focus wide open, the lens can be quite sharp in the right conditions. For me, this lens' sweet spot is f/2 and f/2.8, but f/1.4 is there if I really need it.
