New FE 85mm lens - is f/1.8 enough?
4 weeks ago

I'm betting on Sony's launching of an 85mm lens for phokina. I would like to ask the pro photographers here present : Do you really need an f/1.4? Do you think f/1.8 would be a problem for portrait photography? I believe that f/1.8 is probably good enough for 98% of any needs.
