I'm researching which puppy to buy. the ef 85 1.2 L, or the 50 1.4 / 50 1.8 II.
I have a digital rebel xt so it has a 1.6 multiplier which bumps my 50 to 80 which is right in "ideal" portrait range. the 50 is also substantially less then the 85 1.2, any opinions on this? I'm not a professional, just looking to start out doing some studio lighting practice and feel my 70-200 is a bit too much to be shooting portraits with.
There is also an 85 1.8 available, for about quarter of the price of the 85 1.2L
The cheaper lens is actually much faster focusing and obviously significantly lighter.
Quality is supposed to be good for both lenses (though better with the 1.2L) Depends if
you need to focus speed and lighter lens, or not.
