Great Blue Heron & Spring
Posted By: metalfab, 03-22-2008, 04:56 PM

Today I bought a gem of a lens, the M 85mm f/2.

My wife and I went for a walk in the local park that has many trails, some going through the wetlands. We were just casually walking when we heard flapping behind us. Pretty much out of no where comes this Heron and lands not 30' away. Here are some results from my first shots with the M 85;

Zero PP, just cropped and resized.

Thank you Borno and Techiechick.
This M85 lens could very well stay glued to my camera, I think I like it more than my FA50.

And I just passed up on an M 85 F2.0 too! "What do I need that for, I've got the 77ltd"
Great shots, love the bokeh in the last one.

NaCl(but I really don't need another lens in that range, I don't really need another lens...and repeat)H2O
