85mm 1.8 is one of the first prime lens I got, while not as popular as 50mm, it's capable of doing things that 50mm can't really do.
I am still surprise by the artistic quality of the lens consistently. While nowadays I use my trustworthy 17-55mm 2.8 the most. 85mm always gives me the result that I wasn't able to get it from any other lens.
