Re: My 58 1.4G is dead :(

My new 58G will arrive this friday, really really missed this lens. I pulled out the old 85 1.4D to fill in meantime which hasnt seen day light for many months since the arrival of the 58. I cant believe how poorly the 85 performed compared, I really have been spoilt using the magical 58. I even prefer the bokeh of the shorter lens it just oozes character, and CA on the 85 is quite bad.

Whilst I was there I ordered a 72-77mm step up ring and a 77mm cap to avoid the known chewing up of the front issue on the 58, also I can use my 77mm filters which will come in handy for sure.

Im Still waiting for the insurance to get back but dont hold out much hope there...

Praying I get a great copy, will be back soon to report.
