I have never owned such a creative lens. Just made the move from a D7100 and a Tamron 24-70 this week to a D610, Nikkor 50mm AFS f/1.4 and the 85 and I am extremely thrilled. It's like a whole new frontier that at the same time makes me feel at "home" as 30+ years ago I shot 35mm film. Went to "the dark side" of point and shoots then to DX with a D90 upgraded to a D7100 6 mo. ago. Been through half dozen zooms over the last couple years only to realize they are too heavy for my taste hence the addition of the 50 & 85 this week. I held onto a Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 for wildlife and zoo type stuff. For some reason with a zoom as my walk around lens I seemed to always be searching through the range versus taking the damn shot!
In any event I just wanted to trumpet how good the 85 is but the many reviews speak for themselves obviously. What a fun creative focal length!
