    exactly. renting is a waste of money. Just do it.

    How much does the 85 1.4 run new? Just buy it and we can have a bokeh-off between your 85mm 1.4 and my 85L

    $1,100 now w/ the price increase at B&H. :mad:

    It was below a $1,000 before and I should've bought it. :wtc:

    funny and related story...

    Today, I checked to see how many points I have on my Citi Card. 21,000... SWEET!!!

    I went to the "THANK YOU" network to see what I could buy. Noticed the camera section. Went in and saw they have the D3x, D3, and assortment of lenses, including the 85 1.4!!! Figured w/ that many points I'd get some money off and pay the rest, right? WRONG!!! I clicked on it, I was still 15X,XXX points short. At the bottom of the page I saw a link that said "buy extra points". Sounded like a good plan, until I saw what they want... 100,000 points for $2,500!!! Then I'd still have to buy another (almost) 40,000 points.

    If you do the calculation of $40 per point I'd be buying per 100,000 points... the 85 1.4 would be damn near $6,000!!! :ugh:

    Maybe something small, sell the D300 in favor of a D3 or another D700 down the road. Who knows. I need to grow my collection of Prime lenses first. Maybe just do weddings with a 35 2 on one and 85 1.4 on the other. Make it as epic of a shoot as possible! :big grin:
