Re: New to Canon EOS R, seeking advice on gear

I stop my lens down to F2 or smaller often, especially when the subject is close or there is more than one person in the picture.

Had the RF 85 F2 been available at the time, I would have chosen it, not just for the price, but for the macro focus. I use the macro focus on my RF 35 F1.8 often. There is alway something small and interesting to shoot, when you're out shooting bigger things.

For portrait/pet photography, would you consider the better bokeh of the 85 f1.2 worth the weight and price difference over the 85 f2?

Honestly, I think I should have bought a second body before I bought a third lens. Every time you change lenses outside, you expose the inside of the camera to dirt and moisture and risk dropping a lens or camera.

Thanks, so overall I guess you are advocating a buying trajectory like this?

1 camera body + 1 zoom + 1 prime

second camera body

1 zoom or 1 prime

I guess I am currently still at Stage 1 of this!
