Hey guys,

Just an amateur here.

I got a 50 1.8 but absolutely going to upgrade to 85 1.8 (on 7D).

My 2 cents.

I've used 85mm on a crop camera. Indoors, I always found it awkwardly long for anything but a very tight crop, though much of that depends on the size of the room you are in. 105mm on full frame feels like my limit indoors unless I'm going for candids only. Of course, it's all personal preference.

I LOVED the 85mm lens when space permitted though (certainly helped that it was an 85mm f/1.4).

Well let me explain.

The 85 I want to use outdoors for candid and portrait (on crop indoors it is a bit long) ,terrific subject isolation on a budget imo.

In june I am going to Paris and already got a couple of shots in my head, but not sure I get the lens for just that cause.

BTW I shoot 7D (crop sensor).

The 85 is still pending
