50mm equal to 75mm on the A700, close to 85mm.
Only from an angle of view perspective, not from a Depth of Field perspective.

This is ironic that we discuss the 100 f/2, I just recieved mine today from KEH. The thing looks brand new.

Ten hours after I ordered the 50/1.4, I order the 85/1.4 from eBay, $799. They should be the sweetest holiday and birthday gift for myself. I did not see the 100/2 at KEH, otherwise.....

Hope the 50/1.4 and 85/1.4 both work ok.

Happy holiday to JimC and every one in the forum.

Did you get a chance to use it yet? What do you think?

Congrats on the lenses (to lsifs for getting a 50mm f/1.4 and 85mm f/1.4, and to lomitamike for getting a 100mm f/2).

I'd like to have all 3. Right now, I've only got the 100mm f/2 out of those 3 lenses.

Oh, you know that as soon as you open the box you just got to play with it.

Here's the very nice lady that was happy to see me get this lens that I've been looking for a long time.

This was the first photo I shot with my new lens. Right out of the camera only downsized.

This is one of the reasons I really wanted this lens. This is me standing under the hoop in the gym I'll be shooting in. Check out the EXIF that makes me very happy.
