Re: What does the 85mm f1.8 offer apart from portraits?

I use it whenever I want sharpness that surpasses what a zoom lens would offer.

Taken with the older 85mm f/1.8 AF (not D). What you don't see in this small photo is the guy fishing on the rocks and the fence near the buildings. Unfortunately I didn't use a tripod that I had with me (stupid me) or the photo would have been sharper.

Always have a camera with you and make sure you use it.
