Ok awesome. Thanks for the input. I have both crop and full frame. Yeah I will use it and a wide angle for concert type video. This probably the last lens ill buy for a while and now I am saving for a better camera just for the higher iso and better autofocus for pictures.So I just ordered the 85mm 1.8. Should I return it? I want the 1.8 for low light video and depth of field in pictures. Given the current trend I wonder if it would be best to return it and just wait. Seems like it won't be but another two months or so? Is would be helpful and the current trend is also for better picture quality.
Nah, hang on to it. You can take some great pictures in the meantime. And when the new 85 comes you can sell the old one to help pay for it. It'll be longer that two months, even after it's announced and released you'll want to wait for the price to drop. The 85 1.8 is a great low light lens for the price.
Are you using FF or crop? It's great on both but you'll get smaller dof on FF. In my opinion f/1.8 on FF is too shallow for video if the subject is people. It's harder to keep them in focus without constant focus pulls. Prob better to use f/4 and just crank up ISO. The 85 when stopped down is amazing.
