50-135 vs LTD
Nov 8, 2011

I have been considering getting myself a good portrait lens, however I was wondering on what the general consensus is between the 50-135 and the 70/77 LTD's regarding the given subject matter.

Anyone who had both and gave their account would be most appreciated.

Thank you!


I'm a 23 year old lieutenant serving as a platoon leader in the US Army that has an extremely voracious appetite for backpacking and adventure. I am also finally feeding my passion for photography while working on the fluency of my two languages other than English: Spanish and Arabic, and now picking up some broken German as I live in the Fatherland.
