Re: Lens to add for newborn photography?

Congratulations!

With the Sony 55 mm and Batis 85 mm you already own two awesome lenses to photograph your son. From my experience the DOF at f1.8 is often too shallow, which is why I usually use f2.8-5.6 when photographing my daughter. So there is no need for an f1.4 prime.

If I were you I wouldn't buy a new lens right now and invest in a 70-180/200 mm lens as soon as your son starts moving.
