Georg, loved your last work with the tiny 85mm f/2.
It is a very good lens with the bonus of tiny size (almost always I think it is a 50mm lens when looking at my collection of lenses
I made some time ago a simple and not strictly scientific test on bokeh of my 85mm lenses, if you are interested:
Under the circunstances of this test (around 10-30m, palm leaves - the background tree) at f/2 the 85/2 appears to be a little more "busy", but from f/2.8 and down all lenses have similar bokeh (not shown on my test, but beleive...Show more →
Jose, thank you, I remembered your comparison. In my very limited experience with the 85/2 Ais I've found it's highlights at f/2 to be a bit more "contrasty" than my other 85's, but I could be wrong. In it's rendering the 85/2 Ais seem to be closer to the AF-S 85/1.8G than to the venerable Nikkor-H Auto 85/1.8.
The old 85/1.8 will be something like a special-effects-lens for me now (for cats-eye-bokeh-shots and cool ghosting-effects), the 85/2 Ais my personal go-light-85 ;-)
Unfortunately the weather is very un-inspiring, otherwise I'd love to set up a little comparison between my 85's…
Btw, your 75-150 performs wonderfully with a tube - amazing what Nikon's budget-lenses can deliver in the right hands.
