Goodbye, eighty-five.

I’m sending my 85mm f/1.8 Nikkor lens and 81A warming filter back to Adorama. I found that in the indoor light I wanted to use it the most (my home) at the distances necessary (3′ minimum focus and a very zoomy 85mm lens on an APS-C sensor Nikon D70) it was just not sharp. And, really, I didn’t like the focal length and crop factor of this lens on my DX Nikon. Bummer. I’m going to get a 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor instead.

Too bad I sold my 50mm f/1.8 right before I found my D70 deal. Darnit.
