So, I love love love my Beast. But just for the heck of it, I used the 85mm for my own little mini session with my girl. And I was disappointed (again) so I'm thinking of once and for all to get rid of it. But.... I'm still kind of itching for a longer reach, or 70mm will be my longest. However, I'd like to really avoid spending more than $400-500 if possible....ok, maybe $600.. At the most.
