    What would you recommend for someone just starting out professionally with family portraits? Right now I have a 50 mm 1.8 on a crop frame, should I swing for a 50 mm 1.4 or an 85 mm 1.8? Or are there other options that are under $1000

    The difference between the 50mm f/1.4 and f/1.8 is going to be marginal for you. You’d be better off with an 85mm since it would give you a different field of view (and hence, perspective.)

    I wonder what do you think about the 100 2.8L IS. I was between this one, Sigma 85 1.4 and Canon 85 1.8. Being an L lens with macro and the stabilisation made my decision (also another photographer recommended it). I know you use a Nikon 85 1.4 and 105 2.8 VR… wonder how it compares to those two.

    I’m new to full frame, and I think the DOF is thin enough.
