Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Love it. Looks absolutely smashing as well as understated. Quite a feat. Wish I had it.

I think the OP was using the limited depth of field for effect.

However I found the blurring in some of the pics to be a bit random and annoying.

The tight depth of field makes it look like a scale model.

The first shot, where the bike is showing its ass, is as close as I've ever seen to bike porn.

The purple fringing may be a digital sensor issue and not a lens issue.

pretty much how i have been doing it! you gotta do it wrong before ya do it right. i hope the purple fringe is not an issue with the sensor. i bought this sucker used. then again it was a great deal...you guys are scaring me though...here are some other shots just to show off, and for you to analyze.

Nice photos! I would shoot at the smaller aperture, though, to get all of the bike withing the DoF. When shooting wide open @1.4, the stuff in focus is only few inches.

But I love your bike!

It's not a matter of new or used. Each pixel on the CCD has a tiny lens over it that can cause aberration. It's intrinsic to the sensor design. Ninety-eight percent of the time with normal exposures you won't see it. It's mostly a problem with bright, high-contrast images. If you see it, try dialing back the exposure a little.

CA is a totally lens issue. I'm a Canon shooter, and there are 3-4 lenses that are just prone to CA and there's no way around it. I'm sure with Nikon it's the same story.
The worst part of it is that it's very hard to get rid of in PPS.

Here's what I've learned from my experience: try not to shoot with bright lights directed onto the lens. If that is the case, then stop down the aperture.

I've had a Canon 85mm f/1.8 lens that was just prone to CA, and there was NO way around it. The 85 f/1.2 II is another story

Yes, yes, I'm quite well aware of what chromatic aberration is ad how lenses work. I did not even say it could not be the lens. I merely pointed out that it might not necessarily be the lens. For digital cameras, it is not "totally" a lens issue. The little lenses over the pixels on the sensors are subject to the same optical effects as the big lens. This is an added complication for digital cameras that did not previously exist for film cameras. It is not mysterious. I will say that in 30 years of Nikon use, I've never seen anything like that on my film. My Tru-View (Diana clone) is a totally different issue (single-element plastic lens):

Now, that's some wicked CA!

Most any lens, even high quality glass, is going to give better results a stop or two closed from wide open.

Assuming these were shot a 1.4, stopping down to f2 or 2.8 not only would increase DOF, it would improve image quality.

One reason to have a really fast lens, is so you can shoot with it a stop or two closed, and still have fast lens.
