THE END OF THE AFFAIR

I'm sad to say that the time has come to end my relationship with the 85mm lens I bought at the start of this year.  Beautiful though it is, and the images it helped me to make, the depth of field at f/1.2 was sometimes just a few millimetres and for portraiture, which is what I bought it for, this isn't quite enough and more often than not I was stopping down to f/4 or more.  My 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom will become my new best friend for portraits and this prime lens is already on the internet dating site that is eBay.  I'm sure it'll make some body very happy.
