Re: I'm with Ray on this one

Ray and Mike, my apologies if you interpreted my post as a put down of the 85/1.4G.  The G is a faster/surer focusing lens that's sharper and eliminates purple fringing of the D without sacrificing the lovely bokeh of its predecessor.  I've been tempted to upgrade to it on many occasions.  I made my post after editing a set of images I've taken of personal trainers at a YMCA branch, and celebrating the results.  The images are indeed a poor test of the lens, as I used a newly acquired collapsible backdrop... a very useful tool if one can figure out how to collapse it and put it back in its bag.  The thing about the 85D I enjoyed for this series is that it was adequately sharp, while at the same time, gentle on the skin.
