    A few shots taken on a lazy Sunday afternoon, walking around the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th districts in Paris. I took my new 85mm out for a test drive. Love the lens but loads of CA when wide open (plan to use this lens mainly wide open).

    Will head out for some night time photography as soon as I get the chance. I was quite surprised by how much I like the focal length when out and about.

    That's fun! I was thinking Paris architecture, so I was wondering why you chose an 85 mm, but now I see what's going on here =)

    I really enjoyed these, especially the second and third pictures. I think it's a great idea to take one lens out on an excursion with you for the day. It challenges you to look at things differently and to get more creative.

    Thanks guys for the comments. Perhaps I could use the 85 to flatten some buildings from a distance:)

    Yes, it is great to go out with one focal length. Usually I take a 50mm, so I was worried I would find the 85 too tight. However, I have to admit I really enjoyed it, plus having to get so close often spoils the cadid shots, so liked that I could keep my distance a little. Already looking forward to next weekend:) If I can resit the urge for too much wine, I will take it out at night.
