Default Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 ;)

This lens always amazed me... But I haven't shoot with it for a while (which is too bad!):





For bokeh and compression comparison, Zeiss 85mm f/1.4:

Is it me or do you also feel that the greens from this lens is quite different from other lenses. I love the lens for its versatility, fast 600mm and super fast 300mm. Great alternative for wildlife with a cropped sensor. And a fantastic portrait lens.

I don't know. From my experiences most Sigma's have a slight pink warming filter tint on them but not green...
-> Save me from getting a KR1.5 or KR3 filter on the lens

The above images had a gold reflector to the left bouncing back into the model face hence a slight yellowish cast. The green might come then from the surrounding foliage on the trees.

I know I did have a lot of green and yellow cast from shooting in the creek from my other postings, as they were shot under canopies of leaves, but then I did use three different cameras and lenses (Sigma, Nikkor and Carl Zeiss): http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...untry-hat.html

The back light/backlit is just movie(ish). Always love the hair to be back lit while the whole scene is warm.

The yellow and green cast just shows the mood of the foliage and surrounding.
