Re: you have to get 50mm 1.8

Thanks for the replies everyone. I do also have a 35 1.8 af-s and a 55-200 4-5.6. I'm slowly building my lens collection. And the home studio would just be for family stuff to begin with.

I can put the 55-200 lens on and test it from the 85mm distance and see how it looks. I'd love to get that 85mm lens for sure, minor details with the cash flow, as usual for these expensive hobbies.

yeah, that's a good idea. Set your zoom at 85mm and see if you even have enough space for that focal distance. If not, then it the 85mm is a non-starter for you.

Also the 50mm is great as well. It's just not going to give you as much of that wonderful bokeh magic look as the 85 will.
