Ray, wonderful and very moody winter-image. Just like Leighton I really like the colors and the fine compo.
Ray, Leighton and Andy - thanks for your comments!
Ray, yes, playing with imperfections can be a lot of fun. I will try the 85H for sure the next time I'm shooting portraits of people who work with or under stage-light (actors, musicians, maybe stage-workers).
Sometimes really beaten-up and scratched lenses will perform surprisingly well. The Nikkor-H 85/1.8 and the PC 28/3.5 are for now my champs in the "artistic flare"-department ;-)
Both lenses are fairly clean without haze or scratches worth being mentioned.
Leighton, the 85/2 Ais is still in the mail.
