You're absolutely right about the 85mm f/1.8. That's an incredible lens... But this person sounds like a beginner. The 50mm f/1.8 is in my opinion is a better lens to start out with and then upgrade to a better lens like the 85mm f/1.8 or even a 50mm F1/.4.

Plus the person didn't state if they're using a full frame or crop sensor. I personally use a T5i and I find the 85mm to be harder to use for portraits since I have to stand further back.

Just my 2 cents

Best portrait lens for the money is the 50mm f/1.8

You can usually find it for around $125 @ Amazon and Best Buy.

35mm macro is a good lens. Picked one up for slightly less during Canon's refurb sale.

I much prefer the 85mm 1.8 for $350. Nifty 50 was fun, but wasn't sharp enough for me. Slow and noisy too, but I will give it credit for being a great lens to learn with. I outgrew it in a hurry, but a friend helped me out by dropping and breaking it. Got a new lens and a really valuable lesson!

Amazon has a similar deal, but with a *slightly* better bundle (IMHO).

Whats a good lense for full frame for shooting a comic con convention, whereI am shooting a few feet away from the person, and I want to create some easier background blur. Something with a good F-Stop, but the lense can't be too big because I'll be pretty close to the person.

How is the 35mm compared to the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM ? Aside from the LED and IS?

As that is currently ~$100 more... Do these out weigh other performance?

The 35mm has a more noticeable distortion when compared to the 60mm. Assuming your shots are steady, you'll have a bit more forgiveness with the 60mm in that respect. The IS in the 35mm is its advantage over the 60mm.

The decision really just comes down to asking yourself what you really want to use either of the lenses on. They're both great glass to add to your set so I'd imagine you'd be happy with either. If you've other primes similar to one of those two then go for the 'different' one.
