    I don't recall the aperture but it wouldn't be wide open:

    I really like that second one. There's something about it that's just right.

    Maybe it's the balance of the top right v the bottom left...
    or the lines...
    or the colour palette...
    or the subject himself...
    or the just right oof background.

    Na, maybe it's the photographer...
    or the camera...
    or the lens...

    Being that this is a lens thread, I'd say...

    all of above.

    Don't remember the aperture. Probably f8. ISO 320 1/640. Might as well have used the 40-150 zoom here.

    This lens was intended for speed in darker places. ISO 1250. 1/250 second f2.

    One little thing

    Hi!
    Nice picture! If you grant me a little hint, in this case you could have nicely hidden the garbage bin behind the man's head!

    Focus is a bit off in this photo but this lens is tons of fun in this type of setting , I can tell already. Nice reach above the crowd. I think I can do without the m43 75 /1.8 for now :smile:

    Finally managed to track one of these down at a sensible price :). Quick test shot wide open and near MFD:-
