Here are a couple. As per someone's suggestion, I was wanting the 135mm look so I bought a 85mm f1.8, but I find it's isn't focusing correctly. I often get very soft images, does this happen with this lens or is it the photographer??
The second one seems sharp, the first a little soft.
I would look into micro focus adjustment. The lens may need to be calibrated to the camera body. If you have a local place that sells lens, they probably do this for about $25. You can do it your self, but it can take a while to learn it and be confident your first time.
One way to tell if this is an issue is when you look at a soft image, look at teh ground or wall next to the people and see if it is in focus in front of the person (front focusing) or behind the person (back focusing).
The 85/F1.8 is a great lens, but keep in mind that it is prone to producing CA (Chromatic aberration). In your first image, look at the green outline on the tree and the magenta on the railing. This is easy to fix. In Lightroom, under lens correction, tick remove CA. Sometimes you may have to use the eye dropper or adjust the amount to fine tune.
Looks like they had a great time, thanks for sharing the images!
