ACK! One of my favorite lenses has always been the 85 1.8 - light, sharp, crisp. Was shooting for a charity a couple days ago, and shot a family portrait with the 85 1.8 - the backgrounds were awful so I needed f1.8 to make them go away. Put me farther away from a foursome than I usually want to be, but it worked. Then I pulled it up on the screen, and there was fringing like I've never seen before with any lens. Used this lens for years with film and my F100s, and with my D100 since I got it. But on the D2x - well, see for yoru self. Example from a small piece of the image below. Anyone else have a problem with this lens and the D2X? I guess the closest thing to good news is that the 24-120VR is even better with the D2x than it is with the D100. Go figure.
