    Upgraded the 50mm 1.8 for the 85mm 1.8

    Hey Guys

    I just wanted to pass on my findings- i upgraded my 50mm 1.8 for a 85mm 1.8 (due to the autofocus really struggling and wanting that little bit of extra focal length) and the results have been amazing. The autofocus on the 85 is a dream compared to the 50mm and shooting my greyhound running has been so easy - and you all know how fast they are!

    Just wanted to pass it on

    The 85 1.8 is a great lens. I used one for a while a couple of years ago. The focus is much snappier than the 50 1.8 and the images the 85 produces are beautiful.

    Enjoy your new lens!
