I'm looking at purchasing a new lens for my T2i. I'm going back and forth between the Canon 50mm EF f/1.8 and the Canon 85mm EF f/1.8 USM and the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. I've heard that if you're going to spend the money, go ahead and go for the 1.4. However, I am intrigued by the 50mm 1.8 and the 85mm 1.8 as well. I know the 50mm 1.8 is much cheaper than the other two, but am I sacrificing quality for money?
I'm just a hobby photographer, but am often recruited to "bring your camera" at events to grab candid portraits and such. I like taking pictures, whether it be landscape, nature or people.
By the way, I just discovered your website and am bookmarking it for sure. Great tips and it's super easy to understand.
