    For the money, there really aren't that many great options.

    I'm on a "saving my money" beat right now. I'm not buying anything I don't absolutely need.

    Dunno, what are they going for now? Do a pricegrabber and I'll sell for 15-20% off the cheapest reputable dealer.

    what do you think of the sigma's sharpness? i really have an itch for either the 20mm or 30 f/1.4 sigma and i'm afraid i won't like them..how does it compare to your 85?

    It's a weird lens. At 1.8, if you are close to the object, say within it's closest focusing distance, it's actually not bad. If you focus on something say, 10ft away, it's awful. Stopped down, it's a pretty decent lens.
