Re: 28, 35 and 85

I have the 28mm f1.8G and have used it on a D300s and a D800. I think it's excellent, and highly recommended. My favourite lens is the 85mm f1.8G. Most days I just take the D800 and those two lenses. It's a wonderful combination.

I also have the old (non Art) Sigma 50mm f1.4, and I am torn as to what to do with it. I love the lens, and the images it produces, but I don't use it very much, it's not a focal length I find myself attracted to, and it's big and heavy. I am highly tempted to trade it in for a 50mm f1.8.

There are rumours of a new Nikon 50mm f1.4, as the current one has been marked as discontinued by some sellers (Amazon?).
