I wish I owned an 85mm f/1.8 prime right now, or at least had my 50mm f/1.4 with me. Trying to edit a close-up portrait taken with an f/4 zoom in Lightroom to a similar effect that the much faster primes produce right off the camera is like trying to climb Mt. Everest – you’re unlikely to reach your goal. I still think that my daughter’s eyes are beautiful.
