Which portrait lens for my 6D?
Jun 9, 2014

I'm thinking of doing some portrait work (new niece just arrived and another one due soon). But I know very little about this.

My first stop is to get the right lens. I've been reading about the Canon 85mm 1.8 and various others. Is that one OK on a 6D? If not, what do people use?
