Hi folks:
my most used prime lens on D7000 is 35 1.8G, the 50 f1.8 lens is used only dozens of times in the past year and mostly for fun, and the 85 f1/8 lens I bout 2 weeks ago is still in the box and I’m thinking of returning it. It looks like 70-200 is all i need these days. If I’ll pick a second body any time soon it will be coupled with 17-55/18-200 depending on the needs. I'm trying to convince myself if i have room in my photo life for an 85mm at all. Obviously i do not need it, just "want it" and $400 is still money can be used for something else. But it also possible I just not found a good application for it. I'm not into portraits, I have 105 vr for a year now and just purchased 60 micro ... Whee do I fit 85 f1.8 in my setup?

Before i make a final decision on returning it I’d like to ask on your usage of 85 f1/8: for what and how often…
Thanks in advance,
Vlad
