5 reasons why you need an 85mm lens - Pat Kay

The 85mm lens has become a mainstay in my camera bag.

And that’s a hard thing to come by in my kit! As a minimalist, I’m always looking for the max value I can get out of any single thing, and everything I own has to earn its keep.

The 85mm lens for me is one of those things. It’s one of the two lenses I always bring with me no matter what, and one of the two lenses I couldn’t live without.

Here’s why I use my 85mm, and why you should also consider an 85mm in your life too.
