Re: Just for the bokeh is the Z 85mm a competing lens?

Thank your everyone. Glad people can see the value of this lens.

Yes, it was the lowest iso. I didn't notice anything about dr but then again I don't pixelpeep these tings.

I generally buy lenses used and I got the 58mm for a steal, so not much price difference for me. The bokeh of the 58mm is smoother and rendered more uniquely. 85mm is no slouch either. I would be content with either one without missing the other. What I like about the 85mm that you don't have to worry about high contrast situations at all. It saves you work in post for sure. For client work I guess the 85mm might be more reliable.

Depends on your usage, I find the 58mm to be more versatile for the style I am going for. If you do lots of head and shoulders or half body shots, the 85mm might be more versatile for you because of less distortion.
