Re: 50L or 85L for indoor people pics?

For groups, get the 35L. The 50L might work, but the 85L too long.

If the people are moving (not posed), the 85L might focus too slowly.

The 50L is great for small groups, at F5.6 and stopped down from there. However wider then F2.8 is going to be dodgy with the AF...how's your manual focus skills? lol
