In Topic: Portrait lens suggestion?

17 January 2019 - 04:30 PM

My feeling on this is that a good 50mm is a very suitable lens for portraiture on a DX DSLR; it's got about the same angular coverage as say a 75mm lens on 35mm, as noted above, and because they were made in huge numbers you often find good deals on them (especially the earlier AF lenses driven by a motor in the camera body, if your camera can use them); there's also the advantage of wide aperture, which is great for focusing under studio conditions, and gives you an easy way to soft focus the background if necessary.

Some sample photos




On the whole I'm favourably impressed - it's about as sharp as the 50/1.8, quieter, and seems to autofocus a little more accurately, so I may keep it and sell on the Nikkor. But I'm still a bit worried about robustness.

D, but a lot of my photos are used to sell cameras, lenses, etc. - not selling the photos themselves, but the photos are proof that the thing works.

For some reason these seem to have disappeared.
