I already have the 45mm and love the speed, narrow deapth of field and how sharp it is. When I use it for indoor portraits I have had to step back to frame my subjects, so I question how well the 60mm would be for indoor portraits unless you have lots of room.

The 45mm's fast AF has also made it an excellent lens to shoot sports like volleyball. Not sure if the 60mm will AF fast enough for moving subjects. Has anyone shot sports with the 60mm?

I lust after the 60mm because I enjoy shooting flowers, butterflies, coins etc., all pretty much stationary subjects.

I'm just waiting for the price to come down a little. Hopefully before the spring flowers.
