I have been a big fan of my 50mm f1.8 lens for a long time. It is light, compact, cheap, and yields some of the most beautiful images I've taken. The only problem with it is that during events and weddings I have to get up pretty close to the action. The 85mm gives me that extra reach that lets me capture the moment without disturbing it.
Here are some sample shots from around the house, this depth of feild is amazing! I can't wait to use this at my next wedding!
