For all who complain about the cost of the 85mm 1.4

  1. Impressive price (made me wince), but did you notice the auction is over, and the seller received zero bids?

    Heh - yes the price kind of gave it away a bit.

    I used to own one of these and was not all that impessed - it didnt suit my portraiture shooting style at all. On dSLR's with x1.5 crop, I reckon it's just too close.

    I sold it and dont miss it. I'm sure it suits others with different styles.

    Dont get me wrong, the quality and build were impecable, but the FD was just a bit too much for me (it was easy to sell too)
