85mm 1.8G vs 50mm 1.8G for portrait
3 months ago

Hi everybody:

I shoot mostly wait up to full body portraits. I found 50mm more useful ( more profile, better perspective, and easy to change shooting elevations) for me than the 85mm. Most people recommend 85mm. Please tell your reasons of choosing the 85mm over 50mm, or 50mm over 85mm.

Tahnks
