Are you speaking of this lens historically with film or even today on a digital 
body?

Perhaps you have been chanting OMmmm for so long now you are enraptured? Or too 
long in the dark winter of Alaska and the exhilaration of light coming is, ahh, 
affecting your mental state?

Just wondering..., are there any newish lenses that you could similarly 
embellish? or are they all too spec perfect to have that character? Perhaps you 
can show us an "arms wrapped around" grizzly shot?

I know ~80% of my film photos were taken with the 35-80, but I don't recall it 
having the same charm as the 100/2, for instance, when it came to embracing 
people.
