Thank you all for your views but i must say... why would they lower the price so much if they are not thinking of replacing? Isn't lowering the price a sign that a lens is at the end of tis lifetime?
I think he just was interested in a purchase and wanted some input on whether or not it'd get replaced soon.
I just made the jump from Canon to Nikon. With Canon I would use an 85 1.8 at weddings to grab good candids, I've been eyeing the 105 because of it's macro for details/ring shots. I'm curious on how it's performance would be for also doubling as a mid-telephoto, essentially doing what my 85 1.8 did for me, tracking somewhat moving subjects in somewhat dim situations. Does it being Macro make this difficult, would I find it hunting more? Seems like the AF is really solid, unfortunately my budget doesn't allow me to grab both an 85 and 105.. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all!
