Yep all shot on the 85mm f/1.8, and man, I love that lens =)

It's a much much much nicer focal length on FF than it was on crop. It can now be used in so many more scenarios

I have the 50mm 1.8 and have been using that for portraits quite a bit, think the 85mm 1.8 would be a nice upgrade?

Personally I feel that it hands down destroys the 50 1.8 in both auto-focus and IQ

the 85mm just has a certain "pop" to it that I love

With a model like that, I'm thinking I could get stunning images with a disposable camera.

worth selling the 50mm 1.8 to get the 85mm 1.8? I know I wouldn't get too much -- but it would help. Or, do you still find the nifty fifty useful as well?

Considering you could only get ~$70 for it I would just keep it and save up for the 85mm. Who knows, you might need the wider focal length.

I've converted your images to links due to their size. 1024 pixels is the limit for embedding. You may redo the embedding if you have ones that fit the rules.
