I think they are about the same after F4 but the 1.2 has 1.2

If I had your kind of money I'd wouldn't even think about it, I'd get the 1.2!

Nice Ronny, I like the contrast of the red coat against the starkness of the scene.

Shot with my beloved Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AIS, and my much adored Nikon D700, handheld, out the window of my Toyota Corolla, and processed a bit much via LightRoom 4. I like #5

I like #5 too - a charming picture/processing - much like a very old print or a rendering done by an architect.

Ben, Leighton, Ronny, Kevin and Reagan - thanks for your comments!

Ronny, very nice shot of the winterly coffee-break! Love the wide-open-view.

I took a trip to Honeymoon Island today to do some shooting with my 300mm 4.5 EDIF with the TC-14a. Before the rains came I was treated to my favorite honeymoon couple the Great Horned Owls. They have two new babies again this year. I was lucky enough a few years ago to get photos of them mating and seems as though they are still busy in that regard. There were many photogs there including a few of those Canon people

I also was lucky enough to come across a bald eagle. It certainly was a great day even though the rain put an end to my hopes of using the 35mm 1.4 for some sunset shots

Ray, very nice shots of the Owls! Love these birds! Great that you're stepping into the breach* while Jose is looking after Pompeii ;-)
*) I really like your bird-pictures in general - I just can't remember seeing an owl-shot out of your hands.

Thank you, georgms, I had a similar feeling too! I think it came out well cool considering I had no clue at what i was doing! the others are nice, but this one is really cool.
