At the same distance, 85mm at f1.8 will have less than 1/2 the DOF of 50mm at f1.4.

Try it... http://www.dofmaster.c​om/dofjs.html (external link)

If you are further with the 85mm to get the framing similar, it will probably be nearly the same DOF, but for portraits, it will likely be more flattering.

Does anyone have any focusing issues in low light with the 135? Someone was saying that this lens hunts a bit in low light compared to the 70-200. I never heard that before and according to most reviews it is very fast and accurate.

I know it isn't a macro lens, but......
This is a small chunk of one pic I just took.
