So I'm planning to purchase my first prime lens, mainly to shoot my 18 month old running around the house, 600 sq ft apt, and sometimes outdoors. I'd prefer half or full body shots, any suggestions on whether the 50 or 85L would be more suitable for my needs using the 5D3? Any inputs appreciated.

You should consider the 85 1.8 for it's lightning fast focus speed to keep up with your 18 month old.

^^ agree. The 85L is pretty challenging when it comes to chasing kids. I think its too slow personally.

I would not get the 85L for that. Also consider 35mm focal length? Considering you plan on shooting inside a lot it's a good lens as it can capture the whole scene.

85L as your first prime would definitely be "diving in head first".

I'm not saying don't do it, nobody has the right to say that, except maybe your spouse!

I would recommend a 35L. The 1.2 aperture definitely takes practise to use.

ndoors, however, 85mm is pretty tight.

Hope this helps

Marc / newworld666 has been shooting dogs racing and dirt bikes racing with 5D2 + 85L II for years, shooting a kid shouldn't be much harder. Just need a bit practicing :-)

I often chase my cats around in my dark apartment at 1.2, the keeper ratio is damn low but when it nails it it's definitely pretty nice.

Paired with my 1D, this thing is pretty capable! Here's a shot wide open.
