Panos at 85mm with a 36MP camera?

yes, I often do 140 MP stitched panoramas. AND print them at 30 inches x 70 inches. 36MP looks OK, But the stitched photos are magnificent.

I don't doubt some of you have a good copy of this 85mm lens, Mine was CRAP.

Just to close this off. The cat was asleep in the same spot tonight. Heres a photo taken in LIVE VIEW with my 70-200 at 85MM

Its way better than the other lens. Its obvious to me now it was faulty. Click on both of the live view cat photo's, then click "view original" and compare them. The 70-200 VR1 kicked the faulty 85mm F1.8's ass.
