Since the conversion adds about $450 to the total, it took alot of waiting until a 85N came along at the right price. I've owned both 85L's too and for some reason expected the 85N to be smaller. I don't know why really, but that was the expectation. It's actually about the same physical size, but a bit lighter. The Contax build does seem more robust. I never traveled with the 85L because it didn't seem like a lens that would being tossed around in a camera bag. The CZ 100/2 is a very solid lens and I've traveled many times with it in a variety of conditions. It's a trooper. I'm hoping the 85N can step up and fill that role because having AF and auto aperture would be nice. For some size comparisons, here is the 85N with the 24-105L and 70-300 DO in the background -



And another with the CZ 100/2 in the background -



Hopefully I can update this thread later this week with some actual pictures from the 85N Smile BTW - the images where taken with a Contax 100mm F2.8 N Makro on a 1Ds2.
