Tamron 90mm vs Nikon 85mm 1.8g or ....
5 months ago

I am trying to simplify my kit by trading in a few old lenses i just don't use.  i have the Tamron and would like to keep it for its macro use.  When i bought it i thought it could pull double duty but i find the Af slow and it hunts a lot.  this is the older screw drive one.  I have used the 85mm 1.4 before and tried the 85mm 1.8g briefly and always liked the focal length but never bought one.  now that my daughter is 1 and moving around more I thought it might be time but can't really remember if the 85mm 1.8g  is fast enough.
