These eyes again. Just amazing.

so now that you've had it for a while, how much do you attribute the eye magic to the 60mm? i'm awaiting a new lens myself and hope to capture eye magic in a box.
hmm.. well, the 60mm is my all-time favorite lens. it's so sharp and just an all around great lens for portraits and macros but the 'magic' eye thing I attribute more to getting the subject in just the right light. Any area where they're looking into the direction of the light but not the light source. For instance, this was taken in a shaded area under some trees and the light relecting in her eyes is the light from the area 'outside' of the shaded area. So, if you were under a carport for example looking into a well-lit area like a yard on a sunny day then you should get the great catchlights like this that I just loooove. :) but, the 60mm definitely helps with the clarity that's for sure.
I hope that made sense..lol.
What lens are you planning on getting? it's always so exciting to get new equipment, I'm hoping to get the
Tamron Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto AF 28-75mm f/2.8
before the rebate ends at the end of April.. *fingers crossed* :)
Thanks for the lighting tips.

i'm an olympus guy so you're probably not too familiar with the olympus lineup but i was going to get the 50mm f2.0 macro/portrait lens. it's supposed to be super sharp. i don't know what it is about the olympus lineup though but they don't make anything faster than 2.0.
crazy eyes, o my goodness they're amazing!
Gorgeous! I love the eyes!
