look out 200 f2!

now, 200 f2 vs 105 f1.4
they are completely different tools
similar to RPG vs M16.

one can do a little more damage than the other, but both are dangerous.

one is a little easier to manage on a daily basis.

therefore, the 105e may become the new "go-to" special weapon for the mobile guys. guys who shoot weddings and engagement sessions, people who shoot their families, or do portrait sessions with kids (who don't want to be so far away).

I think of it as the 85L
while the 85 1.4g is amazing, it doesn't have that "it" factor.
the 105e does, it's just special.

main take away regarding the 105e is that it has the swirl and bokeh of the 58mm 1.4g, but the 105e is sharper wide open.

Thanks for your thoughts. High praise comparing the bokeh wide open to the 58G

Now, how do I manage to afford one of these guys? :lol:

Yes, very anxious to see more detailed reviews comparing the 105 f1.4 to the 200 f2. If it's even 80% as good as the 200 then I'm sold!

This might be the first time I'm not annoyed by cat-eye bokeh balls.

The cat eye bokeh really ruins this lens for me... but then I don't desire it and can't afford it anyways...

I think this lens will be short lived if Tamron really does release a 115 1.4 VC. Until then nice lens. It does match the 85 1.2 look for the most part.
