Are you going to sell your 85?

I saw you are going to pick up a 200LF2.0 isn't it? :cool:

Yes, or until it gets sold.

:D thats is correct sir!

I have one more shoot left this weekend which will be the last time I use the 85.
Upgrading again!

What could be an "upgrade" from the 85LII? :confused:

35 + 85 is perfect :)

Upgrading to what? What trumps the 85L2?

Ok....I wouldnt say it trumps the 85LII however, its a completely different focal range. All depends on shooting style I guess! :lol:

Best of luck either way, both amazing lenses!

thanks, i wouldnt say it trumps either, 85 is my fave lens to date, until i get the 200mm, im an outside shooter, focal length is perfect for it.
