I'm just curious of anyone with both of these lenses can chime in on how much of an improvement the 85 1.8 is?
I've heard a lot of good things about it and right now I have a Tamron 17-50 2.8 and at first I thought it was an excellent lens but I've been noticing that the image quality, sharpness, contrast, saturation, and even focus isn't even close as good as my old 50 1.8 that I sold when I compare the photos between the two lenses in lightroom......
I plan to get an 85 1.8 and go the prime only route as I love primes and how your eye can see the focal length without even having to see through the camera viewfinder.
I remember developing an eye for my 50 1.8 and it really boosts your ability to see the photo before hand in my opinion and envision the photo before you even get set up.
With that being said, how much of an improvement will I see between the 50 1.8 and the 85 1.8 in regards to portraiture? Does the 85 1.8 nail focus even at 1.8?
Thanks and all the best.
