I thought it would be nice, for anyone interested in contributing, to post a short opinion of the lens, as well as ONE favorite image taken with the lens so that other people interested in puchasing the 85mm 1.4 lens can check this thread for samples and opinions.

My Review:
The 85mm 1.4 is by far my favorite portrait lens. I like the length on a DX format camera, as it allows me to keep a comfortable distance from my subjects while still creating photographs which look up close and personal. The bokeh is always top notch at wider apertures, and sharpness doesn't suffer even at f/1.4. There's always something just a little special about photos taken with this lens. It just seems to add that extra 'spark' to my shots!

Here's a favorite image taken with the 85mm @ F/1.4 and 1/400:

Using his camera as a pen, it is the photographer's job to tell a story: Each page authored in frozen moments of time.

All of my work is dedicated to my father, Terry Lee Geib (1943-2009)
