Newbie question 70-200mm 2.8 vs 85mm 1.4
2

Hey

I always wondered which lens would blur the background the most, if you frame the subject the same, am i right that the 200mm 2.8 would add more compression and show less of the background? Or does the 1.4 make up for the zoom compression in amount of blur by it's aperture.

Note i am not talking bokeh quality just how much the background is blurred.
