So the 85mm is supposed to be a "classic" focal length for portraits...
These days with the 1.5 crop cameras it also becomes a 127.5 which i guess can be considered as the other classic focal length of 135mm. So lets talk about these 2 uses of the 85mm ... or is it exclusively used in the "classic" FX format?
Why would you get an 85mm prime when you can use a bunch of 70-200 or 24-70(or 35-70) zooms? is that aperture so important ?
All in all ... why 85mm prime? what is the hype about ?
