85mm f1.8g/50mm f1.4 + Roundflash Ringflash at Night

The first pic was done with a D750 and Sigma 50mm f1.4 art. The next two were done on a D810 with the 85mm f1.8 nikkor. Just sharing my thoughts on the Roundflash ring light product. The speedlight was a Godox v860.

While I find the fill flattering (and a bit flat to be honest) at night when you don't want to crush your ambient, I found that the catch light at the 85mm focal length to be extremely minimal.

I realize, not everyone uses the ring flash or round flash for the catchlight alone, but I think 50mm will be better, the first picture I took a while back on my D750 was on a 50mm, and while 50mm isn't ideal for a headshot, the roundflash +50mm combo gave a nice sized catchlight.

What do you guys think? TIA
