Thank you. I will pass on the 85mm lens.
D6, 35mm f2 IS USM, 50mm f1,8 STM
That is the start of a pretty decent FF camera kit. I own the same gear. Those two lenses are true gems for their costs. I would recommend saving up a little more and buying a constant f/4 aperture, zoom “L” lens next.
I recommend going wider or longer. You can do either for under $1000. You could get either an EF 17-40mm f/4L IS USM zoom, which is currently selling for $300 off. Or, you could get the EF 70-200mm f/4L USM zoom, which is also on sale this weekend. Another choice is the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM.
Or, save up even more for one of the f/2.8 constant aperture zooms in the same ranges. I think one of the most versatile lenses I own is the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM zoom lens, which has been recently superseded by a Mark III model.
I believe that the above photo was shot at 100mm f/5.6, using the 70-200mm lens. The camera body was a 6D Mark II. I used Continuous Drive mode, and AI Servo with all AF points active.
Canon’s L lenses will take your photography to a whole new level, most especially if you can get your hands on one of the f/2.8 zooms or primes.
