Indoor basement studio lens choice - 50mm 1.8d or 85m 1.8D
Dec 28, 2012

So I'm basically allowing myself to only purchase one of these, and I know the 85mm is about 3 times as much as the 50mm, but i'm only getting one.

I have a single umbrella with a Yongnuo YP-560 flash with a yongnuo trigger for manual flash control on a D7000, on black and white muslin backdrops.

Will i see better results from the 50mm lens for portrait/baby photos, or with the 85mm??

For this purpose, does the 85mm cost justify itself for a setting like this, or is 50mm just fine?
