Finally had the time to go shoot with my newly acquired F5 (still can't believe the price I got it for) and AF 85mm F1.4D. All I can say is wow! Nice to finally have a body that can drive the AF of this lens appropriately, neither my long gone F70 or D70 could do it, and the viewfinder, what a difference from my D70... My Fm3a will get some rest I think. I am ordering the new 24 f1.4 along with a bunch of ektar even if it won't work on the fm3a.

The whole roll was shoot at f1.4, mainly of my dog running. This will be the ultimate test for AF performance. I'll post some image when they're back from the lab.

Now I only which I still had all those lenses I stupidly traded for a D70 6 years ago...
