I've been shooting with the Canon 50mm f/1.4 for years on a Canon Digital Rebel (first an XSi, then a t1i) and I love the low light capability and the super shallow depth of field it can achieve, but the narrow angle drives me crazy sometimes. I often can't get far enough away from my subject to get it in the frame, so I think what I need is something wider, right? I mostly shoot portraits, and the 50 is great for that in a very spacious and controlled environment, but I would like to be able to get better candids (it's hard when you have to be like 20 feet away from your subject), single out individuals in group gatherings, etc. Someone recommended to me an 85mm, which I see here seems to be recommended for what I want. What do you think?
