My lust has been stilled (temporarily, at least)

  1. with the arrival of my new Nikkor 60f2.8 Micro and 85f1.8 lenses :)  Now I need to get out and get some shots with them in order to test them properly (and to discover what else I might "need") LOL!

  3. I think you'll love the 60mm. Mine is always in my bag with me. Doubles as a decent portrait lens as well.
    However, the 85mm seems it would be better suited to portraits.
    Nice lenses.

    2 very good pieces of glass. you will add more soon!

  5. I don't have the 60mm but I too hear very good things about it. I do have the 85 1.8. Although rarely used, it's my favorite lens. I find it diffucut to find the right locations/time to use the 85mm range, but when I do pull this dude out the results are amazing. That lens is a "gotta have" in my book for sure and one I'll never sell it.....

    Contrary to what most people might think , I don't see the 85mm as just a portrait lens. I've used it a lot just for street photography and I love it ! You can check some of those out here if you like.

    Have fun with your new toys :smile:

  7. Julien, those shots are great. I think you use the 85 in a perfect way. I hope to do some street stuff one day, just haven't found the right place, time, and nerve to get out there and take them.

    Thank you Kap and epicfish :redface: It was mainly to show modestly that you could do other things than portraits with it.
  10. Thanks to all. Julien- a great gallery and wonderful use of the 85mm, I would love to emulate some of those shots!

  11. I love it as well for Street Photography.
