Hey stoltzy, congratulations on your purchase and how do you like your new toy??? I hope you are as happy as I was when making the change!!! The 85mm lens must have been a joy to shoot with..... one day I will get one!

sFor your first time out it looks like you have got the settings pretty well sorted as exposure looks good to me, did you have to do much PP to get them looking like they are?

Just a minor thing, don't forget to straighten your work (you probably were so excited with everything you didn't take much notice LOL) as the first one is a little out but nothing major!

Have a great time getting used to shooting with this camera and I'm sure you are going to get great results.

Mark1616, the only thing was I crop the pics & checked the contrast. I didn't use any noise reduction on any of the pics. But for the first time out I think there is a world of difference between the two cameras. I couldn't believe I was able to shot in 800 ISO in a grade school gym.



This was a pic the night before with the Minolta 5D settings 200, 3.2, 3200 with Tamron 28-105.
