WOW, you WERE quite a Canon shooter. I *adore* my Canon 85L despite not having shot with it for over 5 years. I still have it in storage and give it an exercise every once in awhile. But I dont shoot with Canon seriously anymore. I could not part with it even though it is worth slightly more than what I paid for it.
I am not terribly interested in cameras much, only lenses. I dont see much difference between a Canon 5D, 5DII and D700, D600. I could go either way without any stress. It's all lenses for me....Show more →
The 85 f/1.2L is my all time favorite lens. I'd bought all my lenses except the 17-40 used and found great lenses at outstanding prices. It wasn't easy to walk away from all of that, but the Nikon 85 f/1.4D is hardly chopped liver and when I sold the last of my Canon kit I invested that money in the more expensive, fast MF lenses, including the 85 f/1.4 AI-s, 105 f/1.8 AI-s, 135 f/2 AI-s, 35 f/1.4 AI-s. I've definitely been happy with my Nikon kit. I understand your feelings Tom, but I've found my home, which is probably reflected most clearly in this thread that is approaching its third anniversary. Photography has become a delightful social venture for me, much enhanced by the community of folks who love these lenses and enjoy sharing their work. We've created something quite wonderful here, so no going back for me...
