I own both, but sometimes I dont know which one to use... I really like them both.

I also own both, and I use both for portraits, and I make my choice depending on what I want to achieve with the portrait:

  • environment portrait showing person in circumstances

  • focused on the person and just that

  • how close

  • what does perspective do to the face and which one looks best.

There is no way of saying that the one lens is better than the other.

Thanks for those advices, I think I know what are you trying to say but... is there a way you can give me some examples?
