Re: 50mm or 85mm for portraits?

I have often said the 85mm f/1.8 is a lens that every parent should own.

Not only is it a great portrait lens, but, it is also great for your child's performances in gymnasiums, and school theaters.

It's focus is faster than the EF 50mm f/1.8, and personally I would get a EF 40mm f/2.8 STM, before getting the 50mm f/1.4.
