85mm Vs 135mm: Portraits on a 35mm Frame
Jun 21, 2008

I'm wondering if there is a big difference in results using a 85mm lens versus using a 135mm lens for the subject taking up the SAME amount of space in the frame as far as "compression" field of view is concerned.

Not referring to DOF but would a portrait look better because of the more narrow field of view?? Or is there much of difference between these two focal lengths.
