Re: There's something about the Cream Machine...

Dear Frank,

Your only mistake was that.... you posted here in DPR, where (most) have no manners. The Cafe misses you, and your posts are always nice, oftentimes inspiring.

I will tell you this... having owned the: 85 f/2 AI, 85 1.4G (which I hated...a lot), Sigma 85 1.4 HSM, 85 1.8G and D, and finally, the 85 1.4D, my favorite is still the 1.4D. There's something about it that is hard to describe. It paints....beautifully. The 1.4G is WAY too clinical for my taste, and I have to say that I wasn't very happy with its bokeh. In fact I sold my G and went back to the D.

And yes, I have the 200/2 VR1. I know what good bokeh looks like. The 1.4G is pedestrian IMO.

Uncle Frank-- keep posting and ignore the trolls.
