    I have the 85/f2 and 55/micro both bought at bargain prices from KEH and both super sharp. Even with my near-sightedness and astigmatism I still manage to get sharp images with these two lenses.

    Hah, Nancy...I have that same problem.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    It seeems like you need some closeup- and macroabilities. I'll second the 55mm and 105mm micro suggestions and ads the 28mm f/2,8 AIS that will focus as close as 20cm. Very good for closeups.

    It took me a second to realize that MF meant "manual focus" not "medium format".

    That will teach me to read these at 4am!

    For MF lenses, consider some of the E-series lenses. They were made at the same time of the camera, and were designed as "inexpensive" lenses. That said, some of them are very nice. They are also smaller and lighter than the AF lenses you have. They are also so cheap as to not be much of a budget concern.

    I have the 100mm Series E lens. It is sharp stopped down and has a nice bokeh open. I also have the 75-150 zoom--similar properties. I found I almost never use the zoom as the 100mm is so small and light (the zoom is light for a zoom, but the 100mm is right in the middle of the range).

    I have that lens in AI version, and it is one of my all-time favorites. It is so sharp that you have to hold it with welders' gloves. I also use it with a PK12 extension tube for macro work. VERY shallow dof when you want it!

    I also have that lens, and it's a sweetheart.
