50mm or 85mm better portrait length for DX?
Mar 22, 2012

As you know, there are new 1.8G lenses for these lengths that are pretty well regarded. If 85mm is the classic portrait length on full frame, 50mm on DX is a bit short and 85mm is fairly long. I can get specs, prices on my own; just interested in any subjective thoughts as to what works best.....
