    I posted this over in Pictures forum, but I thought I'd share some lens lust for the 85mm 1.8.
    A sunny afternoon, a 3 year old daughter and the family dog.
    No PP, just resizing...darn the blown highlights, but not too bad for quick grabs, eh? I love this lens -- the sharpness overwhelms me.

    I keep meaning to get one of these when they show up on eBay! A great alternative to the Cream Machine.

    85 is perhaps a little bit long for a "normal" lens on APS-C, but for the shots like you've shown above, it hits the nail right on the head.
