Victoria, how did you decide to get the 85mm? I want a new lens (besides my nifty fifty) but I'm so torn on which to get. Was there an overall deciding factor for you?

Well, I have heard that full body shots are a lot sharper with the 85mm compared to the 50mm and that it is amazing for outdoor shots. It apparently gets pretty great bokeh even when standing further away from your subject. So now that it's spring and I'm doing lots of outside stuff, I just thought this would be the right choice for me. I don't think I really need a zoom lens right now and I don't mind running around after my subjects anyway, haha.

Does that help? It was a hard decision.
