Hmm... How about 100mm F2.8L marco.
Any idea is there any difference to take a portrait shot wit a macro lens compared to a non-macro lens using same focal length?
I will go for 85L .....
i personally will opt for 85mm, as i prefer a less tight crop
I'd say 85mm F1.8
But I don't have that lens right now. So, I'm using my 50mm f/1.4 which I really like.
If your deciding which lens to get using focal length, u might want to rent a 70-200 and go walk about and shoot some portraits. Then see which focal length u use more n decide based on that.
if you are using canon system, i think the 50mm F1.8 is good
Just thinking about it logically, the longer your focal length, the greater your working distance will be for the same FOV. 85 on a DX (1.5x) cam already I can feel is quite far. I shudder to think how far you'd need to stand for 135. Kinda difficult to work out of earshot
And also in Singapore, the further you are apart, the greater the risk that someone might walk in between. Or have to stand and stare, which results in a rushed shot.
On a APS-C sensor, I'd pick a 50mm, which is equiv to 80mm for your canon
If on FF, I'd go with the 85mm 1.8
Judging from the lens selection, I'm assuming you want to take head & shoulder shots?
I feel 135mm on a crop is a bit tight..
Thanks for the reply~!
From the replies from you guys, seems that 135L is really to tight from cropped body. (Though I have not try it out myself)
After so research & reviews on the internet, I considering the 85 F1.8 & 24-70.
