Uncle Frank isn't the only one who wants the 85mm f1.4 lens. To me this is the perfect portrait lens.Patrick Bramlett said:I created this forum with you in mind. I know how you really want that 85 1.4
Joe. Don't forget that the subject is delightful too. Proud father eh :!:Joe Marques said:Do you know what the "D" stands for in 85 1.4D? "Delightful"
Here's a sample:
Keep in mind that's a studio shot at f5.6 and it's sharper than other lenses at f11 (just look at the eyelash detail in this reduced size shot - you can count them).
Dao, I have it on good authority that she takes after her mother. Nowhere near "creepy" enough to take after Joe :wink: .daodang said:

Hey, Joe, evertime I see this shot it reminds of just how good it is, both the shot and the lens.
Ya know, Joe (you've never heard that before have you :?: ), reputation follows you, never to be lost. Lizzy hung that on you, and now it is yours and yours alone....... Must make you a riot at Halloween, eh :?:Joe Marques said:Thanks to both Dao and Bill. Well only thanks to Bill after the creepy part.
Hey guys, I mentioned it elsewhere but the gent I bought the 35mm f/1.4 from either is just about to or has put his 85mm f/1.4 up on eBay. It's a manual version, but with this lens it shouldn't matter that much. Anyway go for it! You might get it for a lot less than the thousand or so it costs as an autofocus. The fellow is very nice and has about 1000 positive remarks and no negative ones.greyflash said:
