Nice work with the fast 85s. As nice as these clearly are, I think one of these would be too specialized for me. Now if someone were to give me one I'm sure I could find something to do with it!

thank you - as far as specialized, they are just a longer focal length; the A* 85/1.4 is actually easy to shoot with....

I am sure the A* is a much better lens technically, but to my taste the M chucks out far nicer colours.

Finally this summer I get a chance to use this camera for the reason I got it in the first place. Insects in the garden so far this summer have been thin on the ground and far from compliant. Fuji X-H1 and Tamron SPII 300mm f5.6.

The trouble with having so many lenses, is that some of my favourite ones get neglected. In this case the HD DA 40mm f2.8 on my KP.
