I am planning to buy my next lens, and I am tryng to figure out between 50 mm 1.2/1.4 or a macro lens. I am not sure if a macro lens can be used for portrait too. please give some of your opinions. I like to shoot portraits and macros too. I use 70-200 f2.8, but im feling that I need a better lens for this shot. But I also like portraits. Do I need to buy both or can I settle for macros for a while? thank you for sharing your opinion.
