Uber Lens - The Mighty Nikkor 85mm

I don't know why I waited so long.  I finally purchased a Nikkor 85mm F/1.8 lens.  I chose to go for the F/1.8 versus the newer and brighter F/1.4 mainly for the cost, and because my focus isn't on portrait work.  I've been giving it a good going over today, and my opinion so far is I made a great purchase. 

The lens focuses extremely fast, is incredibly bright (I can't wait to take it out on a night shot), and the bokeh is top notch.  I have a feeling this lens will spend lots of time on my camera.

I have a model shoot coming up in a week or so and will give the new 85mm a good workout.  More on this beauty later.
