Re: New D700 User Need Suggestions for Prime Lenses

You're absolutely right, ofcourse. It's just for me, my percentage of takers with this lens is much lower, so the temptation is always to grab my 85mm afd..

I find with the shorter focal lengths I get away with it; here's an example with my 5-year old running full pelt - 40mm voigtlander - zone focus at f8, then shooting when he's about the right distance. I couldn't do this with the 105mm.. (maybe this is an inappropriate thing to with the 105mm?.. there is so much to learn with MF.. all part of the fun :))
