Sony 85mm F1.8 vs. 90mm F2.8
1

Hello All,

I would like a lens that I can use for both portraits and macros.  I know the 90mm will do both, but it is considerably more expensive.

Also, i would typically shoot more portraits than macros.

  • So my question, would the 85 mm with macro tubes come close to matching the 90 mm performance for Macros?
  • How does the 85 mm do for portraits?

Thanks,

Rich
