Dear Ian

How are you and how is winter back in Blighty?

I rememember well your telling me about the cream from the 85mm. It fell into my hands yesterday lunchtime and what a magnificent piece of glass it is! Mind you it may now replace my 70-200 in my lighter travel kit.

It even makes people look younger too - there is something about eyes in sharp focus and a softer focus to the complexion. I've hardly moved the aperture ring off f/1.4 since I got it.

Back to my question - it really is as I describe. Try shooting something printed out of focus so that you can only just read it through the viewfinder. Then shoot at f/1.4 and not a letter will be legible. At least not with my D200.....

I suppose you get even more creamy bokeh than you expect. Can't be bad and worth knowing!

Cheers
