So Daniel, i know you used to use the 85 1.8 a lot so you a certainly familiar with the FL. But, it seems 35 & 135 have been your go to Fl's for the last couple years. Your style of photography has so many full length environmental portraits that i would suspect you would remember how enjoyable the working distance of the 85 is if you were to start using it again on a regular basis. This is what happened to me. While the 135 fl makes beautiful subject separation images, i started realizing how incredibly versatile 85 truly is to use. My 135 started to collect dust!
BTW, i LOVE the little cowboy shot on the other page! 85 won't get you that look!
Same here. I much prefer the perspective and framing with my 85/1.8 to the 135L and, hence used it (sold the 135) far more. Maybe, also, I seem to have an excellent copy of the 85 and don't hesitate to shoot it wide open, if that is the look I want.
At the end of the day, we all have different styles and what works for one, doesn't work for another, as well.
PS: I don't like to have to scream at my subjects
