Nikon 85mm f/1.4D

I love my 85mm f/1.4D lens.

I got it a few months ago from a guy in MIR.

It has a quality of melting away the background that is unmatched with a 70-200 lens.

However I don't use it at 1.4. Rather, I stop it down to f2, or f2.5 for added sharpness and DOF.

Even so, sometimes the mouth is out of focus while the eyes are in focus. 

As you can see from this photo, because I'm shooting from a lower angle, the eyes are in focus while his mouth isn't.
