    First great video, for me im not a professional by no means, but for portriats i have to go with the 85mil allthough i have a crop sensor. So it's not a true 85 and i shoot sony 85 2.8 and i must say i get some very nice bokea outdoors. Full frame is on my wish list, but i have to see what santa says.
    Thanks Matt I've learned so much from your videos.

    I do my best to get professional grade photos and I've had great success when using the 70-200mm and the 105 sigma macro for portraits. Lots of what I've learned is through your channel there is still so much to learn and make habit of.

    When do you use your 50 for portraiture? I can usually get it done with just mine but was thinking about getting the M4/3 equivalent of a 85mm so I don't have to get too close to subjects.
