Considering buying 85mm f/1.4
Mar 17, 2011

Hi,
I already have 1) Nikon 50mm f/1.8 2) Nikon 17-55 f/2.8.
My camera is D50.

My photography is restricted to family only. But I am passionate about it, with a lousy talent. Very lousy. I tend to fill that void by getting the best lens I can afford. It does work sometimes!

So, after a lot of though, I have decided to get into 85mm f/1.4. And I am already leaning towards the new Sigma. There is enough discussion between the Nikon(G) and Sigma. I would not mind the price difference, but I have read more convincing posts that irrespective of price difference, Sigma seems better between the two. Nevertheless, any suggestions are welcome.

Finally, the main reason why I am writing this - All three major retailers Amazon, Adorama and B&H have it in stock at similar price. If you were to buy it, which one would you go for?

Thanks, you guys rock!
