Canon Portrait Lens


I am thinking of investing in a portrait lens. I am looking at a 55mm f/1.2 or an 85mm f/1.4
Which one would be the best lens to get?

  It depends on which camera you have. Is it one with an APS-C sensor or full frame? Do you really need a fast lens for portrait? You would be better off using an f1.8 85mm lens, which would be considerably cheaper and just as good. If you have an APS-C camera the 55mm is the shortest lens you should use for portrait work. Unless if you prefer 'In your Face' photos.
