Obama's official portrait shot with 5D mk II

officialportraitThe first ever Presidential portrait shot with a digital camera is up and it looks great. From the metadata we can see that it was shot by Pete Souza on a 5D mk II at f/10, at 105mm. They probably were using this lens, which is a great zoom for sitting portraits, but costs 1500 ducats. Somehow doubt they cut corners for projects like this.

Focus is good, bokeh is smooth, and the Prez-elect is lookin’ good. High fives all around. Don’t like that tie, though.
