I'm a sharp freak.

Here I stand before you: I cannot deny it. I like sharp. Really sharp.

So when I go do some street shots, such as this portrait I shot outdoors after I shot a bookstore yesterday, I am delighted when the 7D, equipped with the 35mm f/1.4 lens, gives me this (and you should click and then view it at original size: don’t let your PC or Mac downsize it):


(1/125th sec, f/4.5, 200 ISO)

That’s what a good camera and a good lens does. And shooting that street stuff yesterday, I was impressed with how sharp the focus is in most of my images – the focus system really is better tan that on my 1Ds3/1D3. Here’s another example:


Nice car.

  1. Michael, I took the Canon Rebel part 2 class at Henry’s last January, and I believe you were the teacher for that class. It is so nice to be able to find you on the net.

    One of the things that I really like about Canon cameras is the skin tone. The portrait above just blew me away – the red, yellow, and blue look so vibrant, and yet the skin tone looks so natural.
