Hey Jason, looks good to me but you are going to have to be one stealthy dude to get a close up of a duck with that F/L. ;) So lets see the duck.

Okay, I'm a bit late here but I can resolve the Duck issue, however not in stealth mode with the 20/1.7. All I gotta do is mount my 70-200/4 L to my E-P1 and I got me a 400mm FOV (35mm terms) tele...it's darn sharp, too. Just gotta find me a duck.

Thanks. I've had the Sig85 for a few weeks now and I'm loving the portraits I'm getting out of it. The AF is quick and accurate and it's very sharp at f/1.4. I think the AF issues that some users have had with the lens may be a little overblown within our community. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a copy now if I still needed it. BTW, this copy was purchased brand new from user: LightRules in our forums.

Ok so i'm having a real dilemma right now.. I am planing on making a big investment soon. I bought a new car so I'll be selling the other car and using that money to buy a ff camera and 3 lenses. The lenses I have planned to purchase are the 70-200L 2.8II, 24-70L, and 17-40L. The things I plan to shoot are cars/motorcycles, studio/on location portraits both with or without flashes, and some landscapes.

Now from watching the photo sample threads for a while I have seen enough to convince me that those lenses are a great choice for what I need. But... the sound of faster, larger aperture lens really is tempting to have since I won't always want to shoot and f8+ with flashes. Sharpness is a plus too but from what I have seen, the 24-70L and 70-200L 2.8II are very sharp as well.

This may be a biased thread to ask but here it goes anyway lol. Should I stick to that lineup or should I get this: 17-40L, 85L, 135L. Reason for having the 17-40L is mainly for car photography and landscapes and I could also use it for some wider portrait shots when needed. Eventually I would love to invest in the 35L as well, but for now this setup is in the budget. What do you guys think? I really can't make up my mind and I need to very soon.

Is it wrong to be in love with a 85L II 1.2 ???

Yeah I got a problem, big time Prime addict here.

Not even sure why I have a flash anymore ...

I guess I am almost one of you now...still have the 17-40 but otherwise its the 85 f1.8, 135, 300 f2.8 to get the job done here. Am I allowed to be a prime lover if 93% of my focal length is prime?
