Re: Nikon lens rebates expiring this weekend. I caved and bought the 85F1.8g
Decided to try Samy's, and they had 4 1.8g's in stock, so I ordered one.

I didn't think of Samy's !  Tried B&H, Adorama, Crutchfield & Unique.  Ended up just ordering it anyway, figuring it's get here when it gets here.

I had (well, still have) a Minolta 85/1.4 from my prior system.  Really nice bokeh, but I tended to always shoot it at f/2.  It's on the soft side (though still usable) wide open, and DOF is just too shallow for my tastes at f/1.4.  I would have gone for an f/1.8 back when I bought it, but the f/1.4 was the only option.  At least it was inexpensive used.
