Re: Advice on pick for DX - 60mm Micro or 85 1.8G

I tended to have a lot of "misses" when playing with it on my D7000, especially on non-static targets (e.g., a person who will move a little bit, even when standing still).  The 85mm is much more accurate in that aspect, at least in my experience.

That's very interesting. I had read what you wrote here when I mentioned to Mark in post above that Flickr photos using the 60 were almost all still lifes... though I really should go back and look again before I say that quite so categorically.

But I appreciate the insight... and wonder why it would be. Coatings? Optical construction? Just interesting; I believe when people say that all lens design/manufacture (including costs) is trade-offs, so I don't mind having to decide. Hooray for freedom, choice, discovered value.
