Default new toy

Well since this is my normal 'haunt' when I am around, I thought I would post this here. I am gearing up to actually send out my information to all the local schools (uh yeah... thats right! School photography... lots of work not much $$ but as I want to really get my name out there, I know this will help.) So the image below was taken in that 'fashion' (yeah no hair light blah) but I thought I would share what I was getting before with my old lens in comparison to my new toy.

Did this apples to apples, i.e. same focal length, shutter, aperture, ISO and lighting. The shots are both SOOC, only cropped and resized for the web. No sharpening added even after resize. I hope it will show on here what I see IRL.

here are a couple of more from the toy... The red box on the 2nd image indicates where the focal point was.

well that is odd they appear to be dark and under exposed when uploaded but the originals do not.

Stacey, I think you would be happy with the responses you get to the lens if you reposted over in the Canon Forum. Lots of experienced people over there. I am still learning about sharpness and images and really don't know how to direct you.

the only advice i can give you about 28-135 IS lens - turn the IS off when you are working in studio or shooting with a tripod. otherwise your results will be unpredictable
