OK, so I hate it when people post these but here I am asking the dumbest most personal question ever! I just need some help.

Here's what I know I'm interested in:
- Sony Zeiss 85mm f/1.4
- Sony Zeiss 135mm f/1.8

Here's what I own
- Sony DSLR A100
- Sony 18-70mm Kit Lens
- Sony 50mm f/2.8 Macro
- Minolta 75-300

I am into a lot of of landscape shots and artistic set-ups. I sometimes shoot people and portraits, but not in the traditional sense, only when a certain face catches my attention, or I see a cool angle when I'm out with a friend.

I currently use my 50mm macro for people shots because i love the detail and colours. I am leaning towards the 85mm because it seems more versatile but I am second guessing myself because I might miss the "up closeness" of the 135mm. I am also worried that I won't use my 50 as much if I have an 85. ACK! Help!
I think 135mm might be too close on the a100.

Take your 75-300mm ... and do a focal length comparision.
I am LOLing on this post 'cause I am having the same dilemma. Different camera but same thing. I think if I get the 85mm, I might abandon my beloved 50mm. LOL
Good luck...
