    you'll love it. I got the 85 1.2 recently and love that one just as much as my 50 1.4

    my 50 is not sharp between 1.4 and 1.8 :hs:. I usually stop it at f2. I'm sure a $1000 lens w/ better glass should be a bit sharper... although I love my 50. :o

    Ya, sold it locally to someone on TFP for $940. He emailed me the first day I posted it for trade asking me to email him if I wanted to sell it out right. Another guy from nikoncafe emailed me for a trade, but like I told joey, I would feel a little safer with cash in hand rather than the hopes of me sending my $1000 lens to someone on good faith they'll send me theirs.

    Then the guy from Atlanta emailed me saying he was going to keep his and I shouldn't trade for that lens since the beast is a magnificent lens. Guess he was trying to convince me to keep mine or something! As soon as I got that email, I emailed the guy locally, met him around 4 near my house. He looked at it for 2 minutes, mounted it on his D700, gave me the cash and was on his merry way.
