Portrait Lens Question: 50mm vs 85mm
I know that many of you tout the 50mm 1.4 as superior to the 50mm 1.8...
Also, I keep reading how terrific the 85mm lens is for portraits, too.
The 85mm would force the photographer to stand back much further from his subject than the 50mm would...
I imagine it would be more ideal for 'studio portraits'?
I love a good prime lens, but with my newly purchased 50mm (F/1.8), I see that I stand plenty far back from my kids to take informal portraits.
So, do I really need an 85mm? Would it's far superior quality be of importance to someone like me?
