Best Nikkor lenses for it?
... That isn't $1,000.
50 1.4, 50 1.8
Nikon | Telephoto AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens | 1931 $450USD
I have the 50mm 1.8 and love it.
I have the 50 1.4 on my D40...LOVE IT!!!
I feel the better way to achieve shallow depth-of-field in portraits is with a longer focal length rather than maximum aperture. So, depending on your camera format (not the brand), chose a lens that is about twice the normal focal length.
Yes, I reckon the 50mm F1.4 / F1.8 or maybe the 85mm F1.4 / F1.8
They're both pretty cheap too.
Yea, $1250.00 is pretty cheap eh?
I guess it depends what it's compared to .
Here's a nice, fast, 50mm: Leica | 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux-M Aspherical Manual Focus | 11-602
hehe yeah that is the more expensive lens.
Well, as i'm not a professional, i'd probably take my chances with a good second hand lens, which you should be able to grab for under $1000
I just wanted to add.. this little man has beautiful eyes!! = )
