Thread: 85mm or 105mm for portrait lens?

    Default 85mm or 105mm for portrait lens?

    guys for portrait lens, what would be best ? Nikon 85mm f1.8 AF or 105mm?


    105mm AF seems to be quite expensive... for $1k plus..
    is the sigma 105mm comparable to the 105mm Nikon?

    85 f1.4 is better

    105 f2 DC is also a great lens.

    Hello

    For street protriats, would the 85mm be too short ? The 105mm f2.8 VR macro seems to be the adequate length for shooting protriats in the street.
    Appreciate your comments

    Since you can be asking this qns...

    You will probably be better off getting a cheap 85f1.8 and start off with it.
