My 85 1.8 was actually purchased for shooting indoor sports, mainly volleyball for it fast focussing and low light capabilities.

However I soon discovered that it was a beautiful portrait lens allowing some working distance, while also providing sharpness levels difficult to obtain from zooms.

As has been noted already, the bokeh is very nice on this lens.

Here are a couple of pics taken recently with the 85 wide open.
