Hi I loved the pic. Can you tell me the setting for this pic? Is this taken with 650D? I am also planning to buy the 85mm and I am in situation whether to buy this lens as I have 50mm 1.8. and T4i/650D along with kit lens. Not sure if there would be lots of difference between 50mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8.
Do you think 85mm 1.8 would be better than the 50mm 1.8? meaning like not noisy and fast to get the right shot. I like the 50mm bokeh but there were times that I miss the good shot when needed to.
Thanks

Yep he took this with his 650D. I'm guessing he used Lightroom to get some of the depth of field/tilt shift effect seen in this picture. Maizzi does an amazing job.

The 85 1.8 arguably has the image quality (IQ) of an L level lens. It's incredible for portraits and general photography and excels in low light situations. The auto focus is lightning fast making it ideal for sports indoors as well.

It's a great lens to have!

Flickr also says this is a Brenizer shot, so don't expect results like this straight out of camera with the 1.8. A lot of post-processing went into making this what it is. ;-)a

For what it's worth, though, the 85 1.8 and 50 1.8 are leagues apart in AF. Since getting my 85, I almost never use my 50, and just step back to get the shot if I have to. Now thinking of selling that 50 for the new sigma 30 1.4....

As stated, this particular shot is done with the brenizer method. There's about 30 pictures stitched together. It creates an impossible depth of field. And yes, shot with the 650D.

The 85 is miles better than the 50. There's a huge difference in quality compared to the 50mm. You can really separate the target from the background, a must have lens for me, as i shoot a lot of outdoor portraits nowadays. I have heard statements that this lens is the fastest focusing lens by Canon, and i'm in no doubt about that. I recommend getting this lens, if the focal length suites your liking. You do need quite a lot of space.

I agree with what others have said about the 85 being better than the 50 in terms of focusing speed. However, to my amateur eyes, I believe the 50 can come close in terms of image quality. Speaking from the point of view of someone who also uses a crop camera, I recommend owning BOTH lenses if you can, for many reasons:

* The 50/1.8 can be had for CHEAP - well under $100 USD. It's also pretty tough, meaning you don't have to baby it and can be a bit more brave when shooting with this lens.

* On a crop camera, the 50mm length is really more like 80mm, and the 85mm length is more like 135mm - so there may be times when the 85 lens puts you "too close" to what you're trying to shoot. It's nice to have the flexibility to switch from one to the other.

* The 50 is a small, light lens - very unobtrusive. It's a great lens to stick on a camera and just get to shooting because it's a lot less noticeable than other lenses.

Some of my favorite shots have come with my 50mm lens and either a Rebel Xti or 40D. It's a great introduction to the world of prime lenses. If you have the cash to spare, though, the 85 is also a fantastic performer once you understand how to work with it.
