It's amazing what the Nikkor 85mm f1.8 can do. I must admit that I'm someone that preferes very fast lenses. The faster the better, and I even sacrifice the wides to get the shallow depth of field that I like. On the other hand I also like wides... but the 24mm f1.4 cost so much that probably I won't ever see it in my hands. It such a peaty that these nice toys are so expensive... :(
