I'm in a real pickle here. I was perfectly happy with my 35/135Ls last week and thought I was set for awhile. Then I sort of stumbled upon a great deal for an 85L last week and jumped on it without actually considering my finances. I mean, I can afford it but I really shouldn't, you know one of those deals. Well it arrived today and I was actually debating not opening the box; instead just putting it on the B&S forum and getting my money back. I think that might have been the best idea I've ever NOT taken because now I don't want to sell her
Thoughts on the lens: Wow is this thing made of glass or what! It's like they just filled it to the brim with as much glass as they possibly could. It's pretty heavy in your hand but on the camera it's not too bad. Also, as everyone tried to warn me, the AF is pretty slow. But man once it gets there it's freakin' sweeeeeeet Color, contrast, bokeh...you guys all know, no need to rehash. The only question is, do I really need this lens? I don't know/think so
First shot. Literally walked outside as the sun was setting and snapped the first thing I saw.
