When debating which portrait lens to get for my camera, I was debating between a zoom or prime. Starting off my photography, I started off my prime, no zooms at all. I’ve grown accustomed to using primes which led me to get this lens for a portrait lens. Midrange telephoto lens for tighter portraits. I was going to go with the 85F1.8G, but I couldn’t pass up the offer for this lens. It was in pretty mint condition! Can’t wait to get back into portrait photography.
