    Or if you are confident enough, skip the 1.8 and go for the 1.4

    I prefer taking portraits and am very new in phototaking.
    Thanks in advance....
    Sell away your 18-135mm.
    Get a 24mm f/1.4L, 50mm f/1.2L, 85mm f/1.2L.
    Should be enough.

    use your current setup 1st...shoot shoot and shoot....u'll know what you need after that...
    i stick on my 18 200 for 1 year before i sold it away and changed to 10 22 + 50 150.
    a poor cameraman is in the house....hahaha

    have u played around with your camera ?
    change metering...use wireless flash function...
    many things u can explore...

    *only my opinion*

    if you prefer portraits, i suggest you try out the inexpensive 50mm f/1.8 see if the focal length is to your liking... if not you can also consider replacing your kit lens to 17-55 f/2.8...

    yes, 50mmf.18, a 2nd hand will cost you less than $100.

    For portraiture, if u like to blur the background, u can go for these options:
    50mm f1.8
    50mm f1.4
    85mm f1.8
    135mm f2L, etc

    If you like those portraits which include the environment with extreme perspectives, u can consider:
    10-22mm
    11-16mm (Tokina)
    12-24mm (Tokina)
    10-20mm (Sigma)
    8-16mm (Sigma)

    Otherwise your 18-135 lens is sufficient I think.
