Don't! It's so small, fast, light (weight wise), and inexpensive relative to many other lenses (i.e. 85L ;)) it really makes sense to leave it in your bag for when you may find it beneficial.

Although I agree, it's a great lens and I love the nonexistent weight, I already sold my own one. Got this one on loan until I get my 85L back from servicing. I just can't justify owning two 85's. I'd always reach out for the L.. :)

Both of these shots are outstanding, absolutely love that star trail.

Thank you Aaron, I don't think that shot would've been anywhere near as interesting had another photographer not walked through my frame with their headlamp on!

I picked up the 85mm a couple weeks ago, what an amazing lens for the price! This thread was the reason why I got the lens, there are some amazing shots in here. Here are some of my favourites from the past week of shooting.

Is this too warm? Any comments and critiques are appreciated!

Nice shots with the 85, and welcome to POTN! I don't think your second image is too warm, but it DOES look to be too magenta on my screen. I would move it towards the green side.

Thanks! I am super colour blind so it is very hard for me.

Sancho - my apologies for following up your beautiful shot with a subject much less becoming than yours...
