I have a Nikon D80, a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8, Tokina 100mm 2.8 and a 70-200 cheap tele-zoom from the 80s. I've gotten into "serious" (meaning thinking about how, what and why I'm shooting) photography recently and have been shooting a bit of everything (sports, events, people on the street, portraits, nudes, landscapes, buildings etc.). I prefer portraits (studio and outdoors) and nudes (fine art, abstract etc. - still experimenting), but I find the lenses i currently own lacking. So I started looking into some affordable primes (only full frame lenses) and got stuck with 4 lenses (all Nikon): 35mm f/2 ~USD260 50mm f/1.8 ~USD150 50mm f/1.4 ~USD250 85mm f/1.8 ~USD290 I'm quite set on the 35mm (need it for the wider shots) ,but I want to get one more lens for classic portrait work. The 85mm has some nice reviews, but peoples opinion on the bokeh is quite split. If I go for 50mm, which one? Is the 1.4 better than the 1.8 for portraits (bokeh)? I'll probably go to the store and test the lenses on my D80 one of these days. I'll try to post some pictures then. Until then, I'd like to hear your experiences with these lenses, and some photo samples at max. or near max. aperture would be very appreciated.
