It's a very decent lens isn't it. I got mine out a few days ago and the results are excellent but then it went back to the shelf. Just don't use primes.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

Hmmm - goes to show that whichever lens it is, it's very capable (as is the taker)

My sneaking guess is that it's not a Pentax

Ok, time to come clean,

The shots are from a Sigma 85mm F1.4, had it a couple of years, not used much but I think I will do from now on , quite likely one of the last few new ones available, I probably paid a slight premium as the usual stockists didn't have any, and this one came from Amazon, but it was still just under a 1/3rd of the price of the recent Pentax version.

I've a portrait shoot coming up in the next few weeks and plan to use it then

Good luck with the portrait shoot Chris - although I'm sure you won't need luck, the Sigma is a cracking 85 (as you've shown)

Background rendering is superb, colours and composition spot on - think she should have ironed her top though

Another from the shoot with Mel last week, mixed flash and natural light, Off camera flash ( left of camera ) to light through Mel's translucent dress balanced with the little natural light there was under the tree canopy, with the Sigma 85 F1.4

Nicely done Chris - really difficult type of shot to get right and keep that natural look!
