The 85 f/1.8G is so sharp it is recommended to use with D800E instead of the f/1.4G version.
I might start with the 50mm f1.8g and then get the 85mm f1.8g later on.
I will be making drawings and paintings from the images, just faces so i
dont need to get back that far. I will be controlling the light as well.
Eventually i will do full body portraits and i assume thats where the 85mm
will come in handy
Just on other thing, I was wondering about the difference in image quality
between the D5200 and higher models like the 600's/800's and 3's.
If the light is controlled and the lenses are right is there a noticeable
difference between sharpness and detail? Sorry if these questions
Thanks for helping me out.
