OK, here are some samples shot with the 85G .....

So I got this lens yesterday and put it through it's paces outdoors... here are some shots

This is wide open... no sharpening... through Lightroom

and here is the 100% crop.. .I'd say the focus point is on his eyebrow

here is another 1.8 shot, but slightly backfocused.... HOWEVER... this is shot wide open and he was running FULL TILT right at me... I'd say the D600 did a pretty good job considering the DOF sliver is so tiny...

and here is the 100% crop... again, slightly backfoused

here is a shot at f/2.2... very sharp if you ask me...

100% crop
