Re: nikon 85 mm

That's a great price !! Never used one but I know some people prefer it for portrait work over the 50mm, especially if you like tight head crops.

Can't wait to see your shots

Re: nikon 85 mm

If you've got 85mm in the range of one of your zooms, it's always fun to do a comparison shoot. Then you'll feel really good about the prime

Hi

A bit of topic - but are you getting it because the VR lens is not sharp enough ?

The reason I ask is that I was thinking of getting the 24-120 but keep being put off by the bad press
