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

I disagree.  The OP says he has aspirations to do professional work.  He won’t do professional work without professional equipment.  He might do good work.  He might even shoot a lot of great photos, but without that 85mm f1.2 lens, there will be shots he will never be able to get.  And he won’t have those shots in his portfolio.  If you want to be a professional, equip yourself with professional tools and learn how to use them.  If you choose to cut corners, you can still learn and take some great photos, and even make money with your camera, but if you want to be a professional portrait photographer and support yourself with your work, again, get the right tools and learn how to use them.

My life is a circle of confusion - photography is my meditation.
