The 45 was such an improvement over the 30 in terms of capturing good pictures of my family that I am very excited to see what I can do with the 85. This is without a doubt the most serious piece of photographic equipment I have ever purchased.

The 45mm is a quick AF focusing lens and very good quality output, but it is a small lens.

The 85mm's glass is heavy, its aperture is enormous and it requires a bit of user input for focus. It has a permanantly mechanically coupled MF mechanism, so even when the lens is in AF mode the focus ring has a direct effect, there is no sole AF mode with this lens. Getting to grips with this aspect is the secret of this lens.

Good luck with your 85 f1.4, I hope it gives you special memories.
