Anything special about the 85mm f2 AI?
Feb 20, 2011

I put one of these on layaway today as well as picking up a second 105mm 2.5

I can't find too many sample pictures taken with this lense and kinda think with having the 105mm 2.5 as well there might have to be something very special about this
lens that would have to convince me to keep it

So is there anything special about the 85mm f2 that would compell one to keep it
if you allready have the 105mm 2.5

other than it being a tad bit faster I can't really convince myself that there is.

just doing a few tests in the store mostly for bokeh the 105mm seem to be the clear winner
