A hood I recommend to use with this awesome lens (taken with it @ F/2)

it kills me how old these images are, but sadly I haven't taken the lens out in forever. Not because of the lens in any way, its actually one of my all time favorites, its just because im a macro guy and thats all i shoot presently

Indeed, it's a great little lens. So compact and so sharp.

Here are some shots taken with the old *istD

The M85/2 is great unobtrusive portrait lens as you don't have a big eye as any 85/1.4 staring at you. Besides that, the angle of view on APS-C makes it a great short telephoto lens to carry around.

This is stitched from 7 or 8 images. The full resolution is 37MP. Taken from the top of the Arc De Triomphe in Paris at either f/5.6 or f/8 (I canīt remember).
