Riiiighty ho!.... so when I say "best" I should have said "What is your opinion on the BEST portrait lens? What is YOUR favourite portrait lens?... annnnd GO!"... not the same 'ring' to it as "best portrait lens ever annnnd GO!!!" right???
So Thanks for the answers guys! Derrel as usual you comment is the most useful!
I was reading up on lenses today and realised that my 50mm which I thought was ideal for portraits/headshots in fact is rather 'distorting' ??? I then read on to find that most photographers prefer a 105-135mm lens (focal length) works better as a headshot/portrait kens. Would you all concur?
Reason I am asking is because I want to add another lens to the collection. All I have is a 50mm 1.8 and a standard zoom 18-105mm lens. I would LOVE the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 but **** that is $3000 where I'm from! So what would be the next best lens/equivalent? Looking at the 70-200mm f 4 but am I going to be pissed off that I didn't just invest a bit more and get the 2.8?
p.s: Deep dish ALLLLL the way!
