Canon 85mm 1.8 or Canon 100mm 2.8L macro
Jun 21, 2012

Hi

I know these two, have different purpose, since the one is a dedicated macro, although, from what I have heard, the 100mm should be good for portraits as well.
I also know there is a price difference.

I'm considering one of them as my next lens.

I would use it for portrait and if I end up with the 100mm, I would start playing around with macro.

Anyone that can recommend one over the other.

Which lens is the most fun ?
Which is sharpest ?

Thanks,
