hi everyone,

just joined this forum yesterday. from my first impressions let me just say it's awesome! i haven't frequented forums for ages so will take quite a while to dig thru all the posts and rules! i'm still a beginner at photography (started with a d70s and now have the lovely d90) and really like taking pics of nearly everything, especially portraits!

cheers,
leslie

Hi leslie and welcome. PS that 85mm f/1.4 from my short experience is really something (thanks Gary!!)

Absobloodylutely. For a crop-sensor Nikon, it is THE lens to have.

Hi and welcome along for the ride.

My 50 1.4 is fantastic and was a great price.
