Not to mention that a 135/3.5 and 28/3.5 kit is probably the most 
compact and "bang for the buck" two-lens combo among the 
Zuikos. Before getting my 85/2 I shot a roll a Fuji NPS with 
portraits of my daughter and wife - the results were quite pleasing. I 
still reach for the 135 for outdoor portraits where the 85/2 isn't long 
enough to keep a distance from curious toddlers... ;-)
