A few shots taken on a lazy Sunday afternoon, walking around the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th districts in Paris. I took my new 85mm out for a test drive. Love the lens but loads of CA when wide open (plan to use this lens mainly wide open).

Will head out for some night time photography as soon as I get the chance. I was quite surprised by how much I like the focal length when out and about.

You seem to be getting on well with it! Got a ND filter for daylight wide open?

Thanks! Nope for the ND, the one I have is 77mm, the lens is 72. I will mainly use at night and indoors, so should be ok without. Though I really did enjoy using it yesterday, so I may well end up using it instead of the 50mm when out and about.

Some of the shots did go as high as 8k per second for the shutter speed, though there was bit of cloud at times so was ok. It would be nice to have an ND to blur a few shots when wide open......hmm, looks like amazon may get another order soon:)

How are you getting on with yours? I imagine you have more need of that ND than me:D
