Driving is back -- NEX-5N & Minolta MD 85mm f2
The reason I have not used this lens much, is due to the very stiff focusing ring. To gear addicts like me, properly calibrated, and well maintained equipment is a big factor in enjoying the picture taking process. Sticky, stiff, choppy focusing is a real downer. You feel it every time you take a picture. This, however, does not stop me from liking this fabulous lens. In some ways, the smaller size and lighter weight makes up for the 1/3 stop of light loss to my other favourite portrait lens - the Minolta MC-Rokkor 85mm f1.7. Probably for this reason, the 85mm f2 is very popular portrait lens choice.
