14-54 DOF question (mounted on 510)
Feb 7, 2008

I was thinking about buying a e510 body only together with this lens. From what I heard it's a pretty sharp lens with a decent wide angle and the tele reach go's far enough for portretshooting (one of the main things I'm planning to do). I know the 50 f2 is the best lens for this job but since I'm gooing for the e510 body only I want to have a good multi purpose lens.

Finally my question: Is the 14-54 at 54mm and aperture set to 3.5 going to give me a shallow DOF needed for portrait shooting or do I need a faster lens for this. Any of you guys using this lens for portraits? I would love to see some examples...

Thanks for posting!

Jeroen
