No, I haven't received my new lens yet. According to the UPS tracker, it's still sitting in a warehouse in Philadelphia, and sceduled to be delivered on Tuesday. But it's already making things happen... On Saturday, an acquaintaince asked when I'd be available for a portrait sitting. She wants a large framed print of her and her husband to hang in their living room. I asked what style of composition she'd like and her exact words were... "I'd like something outdoors, but I'd like the background to be blurred. Can you do that?" To which I answered, "No, I can't do that today, but I will on Tuesday!" :biggrin: Then I got a call from my daughter, announcing her long awaited engagement to her British beau, Andrew :Love: . I'm going to plan a trip to Seattle to take an announcement picture for them, and I think I know the perfect lens to take. Maybe the 85/1.4 is magic :wink:.
