    macro is good for portrait, but may be too tight for this case as others mentioned. which is why i am considering wide lens

    not saying NEVER use LONG lenses ....... in actual fact, a 70-200 works GREAT vs a fixed focal length 100mm ...paired with a UWA zoom ..... a fixed focal length 100mm telephoto is tough to deploy with the feet

    up to u guys ..... we all live and learn

    i really really hope for a presidential suite but as daredevil said, organizers may try to make it as less costly as possible

    i have tried 80-200 inside a studio and most of the times when I shoot, I asked the others to make way for me coz Im standing at the back
    I shoot with my A7II . I shoot with my Kalashnikov AEG. I just love shooting ;)

    I think I must be the only weird one who interpreted David's comment as wry humour
    Everybody seems to be taking him literally.

    haha... am i thinking the same as what you think he's thinking? Perhaps 60mm macro for really up close shots then got the "personal feel"...

    Hey! I am very professional when I mentioned 105mm ok ? I like the fur to show up sharp and contrasty.

    Update:

    The hotel room was quite big, enough to squeeze in 14 peeps anyway, i used my trusty 50 f1.8 most of the time (the other lens i used is 16-85). another photographer is using 70-200 for most of his shots. so i regret leaving my 105 f2, since I wanted to take some headshots. but then again, taking headshots using 50mm, i need to move nearer to the model which i like haha :
