Re: Advice on fixed focal length lenses please.

The advantage of prime lenses is better image quality and larger aperture. The 35mm is a 'normal lens' for APS-C cameras as its focus is about equal to the sensor diagonal. The aperture enables to shoot with shallow DOF if you want to concentrate on a special object. But for portraits you should take a short tele lens lsomwere between 60 and 100 mm.f
