Question for you fine folks. Have a shoot Sunday, Father's Day portrait. Which of the lenses in my sig do you think I should use? Since I am on Dx, I am thinking my 50/1.8. My 35/2.8 may be good as well. What do you think?

Curtis - those lenses aren't my fault. I suggested the 55mm f1.2SC- who knew you had no bounds?

The zeiss 135mm arrived - but I haven't figured out how to use it yet.

Dean - I love the new thread - that is such a great idea - and I'll post as soon as I get my mojo back.

Here's the selfie you requested Leighton

How many in the portrait? do you have freedom to work at any distance?

Welcome back, Ben! I love the second image, it's a bit like an illustration of a graphic novel: "over-sketched and quick to the point" (sorry, can't describe it better).

Kevin, sorry, can't recommend a lens - it to much depends on the setting (light, location...). For a classical approach (no frills pose, unsharp background, a rather even ambient light) I would probably use the 50/1.4.

Rafael, love the closer shots with your 5.8cm/1.4. Excellent set!

Nice to see you back, Ben.

My suggestion for reacquisition of mojo would be ... 4-5 quick shots of vodka, mount the 55mm and hit the streets

Thanks Rafael (you are exaggerating, Escondido is a beautiful place as your shots has revealed to us), Peter, Ray and Georg.

Mark, beautifully captured Peacock portraits;

Eric, welcome back and gorgeous flowers - I like the black background;

Chuong gorgeous painting;

Samy, great bokeh at the cat - was it with the 35/1.4, right?

Jay, welcome. About the 135mms I have just the f/2 and f/3.5 (QC and AIS versions); no formal tests yet, but I feel the f/3.5 ais is slightly sharper lens, whereas the f/2 is bokeh queen - this is because I have both

Jay from Baltimore, thanks for the tip on the Robert E Lee park, seems to have some birds I have never seen in MD.

Rafael, super images of the classics with the 5.8cm, especially that last one!

Kevin, you will do great on the photoshoot tomorrow. The choice of lens may depend on how many people, but Ray (FL)'s advice on using the zoom will cover everything.

Dean, very enjoyable Siem Reap photos. Maybe raise the exposure a tiny bit on some of them?
Jose that fern epiphyte detail is superb!

Mark, peacocks in Winterthur? That second one is very striking!

Larry, the lizard with the overgrown neck is beautiful. Great use of the 100 Series E with a TC!

Philip, umbrella and bokeh is superb with the 50 1.2.

Lieutenant, that image on the hallway with the woman posing for a phone photo was really excellent.

Ron, not a shabby picture at all of the plump frog!

Jose, thanks, yes, that's the 1.4N, finally gave in after seeing all of Ray (FL)'s images with the 35 1.4AIS variant.

Congrats!
Me too have interest in this lens, but prices are unfortunatelly a little high.
Keep images coming and, if possible, make a "35mm battle" with the OC f/2

In Southern California this will not work, to hit the streets one needs to drive a car.

Thanks for the ideas on lens choice. The shoot is at church, not sure if I will be inside or not, nor do I know how many people. I have a feeling it will be outside with nearly noon light. I don't have any reflectors either...

Kevin, I think out of your line up, I'd use the 80-200mm toward the 80mm side.
