Nikon 135mm f/2D AF DC

for a friend's wedding recently, so we took it out for a practice run.
I noticed this alley behind my house had multi-colored changing
leaves and seemed to catch the light beautifully in the early evening.
We ventured out and I practiced my serious blogger face, which usually
looks more like my menacing knife enthusiast face.
Anyway, the resulting images are pretty impressive in terms of lens 
quality vs photo aesthetics. Just enough blur in the background AND 
foreground, but great focus in the right areas. Unfortunately it's no longer
made but at least it's still available to rent. Have you ever rented a lens?
Good experience or bad?

  5. I'm glad we took advantage of all the (pretty late) fall foliage that weekend; it's all gone now that winter finally caught up. I already miss that lens (sniff).
