Seeing the M series 85mm in the forum classified section prompted me to dig mine out for an outing. Captured on the K1 at f4.0 and flash.

Beautiful portraits of Rio (again ) - it's a very capable lens, especially in talented hands

I think you snap portraits of Rio with a pinhole camera and still make them look superb.

Great job as always.

The 2nd shot is superb and should be perhaps titled " Oh no not another lens test "

I would clone out the OOF yellow and purple flowers in #1 as the eye went to them straight away rather than to Rio's eyes

And crop the right side to frame the head more centre/right?

Great catchlights! They could be used for a text book example.

We keep the fur on their backs quite short, but their ears and "skirts" are always full of knots despite daily brushing. Do you use a "slicker" brush ? they are the ones with lots of steel teeth.

We use a tangle teaser as was told that was the best thing to use! Turns out its not!

Get something like this. they really do work. Just be careful you don't overdo it or they can get brush burn. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Groom-Professional-Curved-Slicker-Medium/dp/B0090X59RM
