I have heard so much in my career from other photographers that the 85mm is just NOT a great lens to use on wedding days. Really, a lot of photographers don’t love this lens in general! Why? Well, I believe that they don’t full understand it…. because when you truly grasp what this lens can do, it’s life-changing!!! You may think I’m being dramatic but this is my go-to, sweet spot, top-favorite lens that I own!! I use it at EVERY shoot and EVERY wedding and I’m truly obsessed with it!
Now, I understand that some have reservations about it. 1. The Canon 85mm 1.4 lens is expensive and it’s not truly necessary. 2. The focal length is definitely on the longer side which can be tricky and 3. Past versions have had focus issues. There is a lot stacked against this lens…. but let me tell you. The 85mm 1.4 is a game changer. The Image Stabilization feature is amazing and I now consider it one of my most ACCURATE lenses in terms of focus.
