Lens Description: The 85mm focal length makes it easy to fill the frame with the subject from a comfortable distance, without getting so close that unflattering distortion occurs. Additionally, the large maximum aperture works with the medium-long focal length to create beautifully defocused backgrounds, so that the subject seems to pop out of the image.
