Yes, the FA 77 is a sufficient enough lens. Won't break your bank or your back. Yes, no need for the new 85. Yeah... that's what I'm gonna go with. :p

For the sake of my wallet, I'm gonna request that any of your photos taken with the DFA* 85 be banned. Heh heh, just kidding, of course. :) You took some excellent pictures.

I just gotta remember the DFA* 50 does a fine enough job for portraits.

Oh, what I meant was that I received the FA* 85 as a gift. So, I still have in my possession an excellent 85mm lens, and I should not give into the temptation of spending $2,000 on the new DFA* lens, especially since the FA* can still produce fantastic photos.

Posting this to remind me that I was GIFTED an excellent 85mm lens, and I shouldn't be tempted by some fancy new equipment. I had the DFA on pre-order for a few minutes before I went through my photos taken with the FA* 85/1.4. I don't know if my wallet is grateful to me for not lightening the load...

Are they really famous? Gotta say they've got some set of stones for rocking out at their age. I'm not sure who those foos are in your following post, either.

Heh heh, joking aside, these are some excellent pics you've captured.

Considering Used Q--which one?

Another Q and a Q7 owner here. I would recommend the Q7 over the original due to the improved image quality and performance. Keep in mind, though, that the 01 has some barrel distortion on the Q7.

However, if you do plan on being rough with your Q, the original is the way to go.

Heh, no fashion show here. Just a Japanese street fashion enthusiast standing at one end of a long hallway. If you didn't shoot with your DFA* 50/1.4 today, well, here's another shot taken with the lens to help motivate you. :) This was taken at 1.6.

There's a plug-in for Lightroom that'll publish straight to your Instagram via Lightroom. It's called LR/Instagram. It'll post photo in the appropriate dimensions, keep the original ratio of the photo, and even puts your watermark if you have one.

Okay, seeing how it's the last week of June, and we need over 6,000 more posts for the giveaway to happen, I'm finally gonna share some shots. Hopefully someone who doesn't own this wonderful camera will get it and won't have any hesitation in shooting ISO 6400 with it. The pictures below were shot with the HD 24-70/2.8
