    Between the D2H, 85 1.8, 50 1.8, 180 2.8, etc., you people make it impossible for me to make up my mind. Maybe I'll just buy them all.....


    Oh wait, I can't :frown:

    50 1.8 and 85 1.8 are fairly cheap, I would start there.

    Hmm, you lot are no help at all! I was set to go for a D40 until I saw these and a friend's 85mm 1.4 shots, so now I need a D80 :tongue:

    Julien, I must say I particularly like your shots - lovely control of depth of field.

    Cheers

    I bought an 85 1.8D in the early days of DSLR's when used lenses were relatively cheap.
    It was only $190 shipped in like new condition with hood and Nikon UV. I miss the bargains possible in those early days.
