    Well, Tim, you gotta admit that with those subjects, any lens/camera combination would be forced to make a good photo :biggrin:. Cute kids.

    I have the 45mm and keep telling myself that I don't really need a 60mm - but those portraits are almost enough to make me press the 'buy' button.

    Thanks for posting!

    Regards,

    Jim

    I was hoping to get the Sigma 60 on sale or used, but I may just have to buy at the regular price.

    Very nice pics.

    Can anyone share performances of the Sigma 60mm under low/indoor lights? I currently have the Sigma 30mm, but it's not fast enough for me indoors.

    There's a whole thread on Sigma 60mm pics:

    https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=44462

    Although the 30mm and 60mm are both f/2.8, so one may not be any faster than the other under low light conditions...

    I have the Panasonic f/1.7 as my 'go to' indoors lens but others have reported focus searching and slow focus with that lens. I've not found that to be the case but perhaps I got a good copy :confused:.

    Regards,

    Jim

    The 45 is my second most used lens. Its a much more versatile focal length than the 60 (60 is significantly longer), as well as being quite a bit faster, and it renders quite nicely. If I had to get rid of either the 45 or 60, the 60 would have to go. That being said, I like the way the 60 renders a lot better. I'm used to wides, but I find myself walking around with this awkward focal length telephoto prime because I like the way it renders so much. So if you are considering it, I think you will be happy with it. They are different enough focal lengths that having both isn't overkill.

    GFFPhoto - I've seen your samples in the other thread and you're not helping my resistance to buying this lens one little bit.

    :biggrin:

    Yeah, that one street shot he took was the clincher for me. Oh well, its cheap at $240 for what you get and I can rationalize it with one word: Amortize!

    The Sigma 60 really does deserve more attention! I've had mine for a month now and I'm totally loving it!
