Scott, I _love_ my recent 90/2.8. My only wish is that it weighed less. This is not a large lens, but it isn't light either. Sometimes I leave it behind for the weight, but never if I'm going to a wedding or somewhere I want to shoot candid portraits. I love it for portraits. This from someone who worshipped the Nikon 105/2.5...until I rented the Leica for a weekend and I saw the light...figuratively and literally. ;) Some examples I've shown before...clearly I use this lens a lot! http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_28/index.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/MBQ_Wedding/pages/2004_MBQWed_r29_00410012.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/Pix2003/pages/big_hand.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_02/pages/alt1.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_12/index.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_27/pages/alt1.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_27/pages/alt2.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_35/index.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_39/index.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/PAW/2004_40/index.html http://www.duke.edu/~ajs2/Pix2003/pages/stereotax.html Best, Aaron >So I'm putting out feelers for a longer lens.
