Here is a little Lens porn for all of you. This is not all of my MF lenses, just the faster ones I'm building around. I hope to move the 28MM F2 and replace it with a 35MM F1.4.

28MM F2 AI, 55MM F1.2 AI, 85MM F1.4 AIS, 105MM F1.8 AIS, 180MM F2.8(the slow poke!)

Wow, that's a nice "quintet", Matt!
I'm really interested in your opinion about the fast 85 vs the fast 105 - especially regarding handling characteristics.
For many years the (AF-D) 85/1.4 was my daily companion and now the 105/1.8 seems to take this part over.
George, I like the feel of the 105 a little better right now( I literally opened the 85MM about 1.5 hours ago) but there is something about the 85MM focal length that I have always liked. I took a few photos with the 85MM of my son in the back yard when I opened it, then took the photos of the lens line up. I'm impressed with just how sharp the 85MM is at F1.4 and the 105MM F1.8 is sharp, but just ever so slightly not as sharp as the 85 is wide open. I'm sure once I get some time with both of the lenses I'll have a better feel for which I like better, but for now with the lenses I posted I'm in heaven. The biggest problem is, which one do I put on the camera first!
