EF 85mm f/1.ii Ii vs. EF 135mm f/ii for events

I’ve been using the 135mm f/2 for portraits in the last few months and started to experience that I’m getting shut to its sweet spots. I’ve heard that the 85mm f/1.2 II is the best of the best for portraits and besides that information technology is catchy to use. I wonder which is a improve choice for events like parties or weddings considering moving subjects and limitation of space.  I’ve read that the 85mm focus is slow wide open.  Some fifty-fifty say its sharpness is questionable wide open.  I experience the 135mm is not easy to maneuver at f/2 already.  A couple of friends have asked me to photograph their upcoming events–engagement, birthday party, and even a potential wedding.  I thought information technology would be helpful to retrieve about these options or even start practicing.

I’m not because buying the 85mm simply may want to borrow or rent one if it is a amend option. Beneath are a couple of “good” ones I took recently with the 135mm. I am satisfied with their overall quality simply again, am ever curious virtually the legendary 85mm, if it could achieve something ameliorate.  Thanks!
