    Adding an 80mm lens.

    I'm currently shooting a (Hassy) 60mm and have been thinking of adding an 80mm for God knows why. My original thought was getting a 100mm and making it a TWO lens kit, but the 80 for some reason keeps returning to mind, probably because I have one for another camera body that I prefer not to shoot, and I find the lens somewhat appealing. So my question is, would it be a mistake to pick one up if I'm going to buy the 100mm anyways.

    Stop now! It'll never end. Next you will want a 150 or a 180. Then you'll want a couple of backs. Then you'll want tubes. Then an extra body.......if you give a mouse a cookie.....

    Glad you are enjoying the 60! Have you posted pix from it yet?

    By all means. You need an 80mm for that "normal" look. But, you'll also need a 120 Makro-Planar for close-ups, and a 180 for portraits. And, have you seen how nicely a 250 compresses things? Wow.
