Is the E50 really a portrait lens?
Mar 30, 2013

The way sony markets it, and also by most stores is that the E50 is the best portrait lens you have with the NEX systems right now. But after doing some additional research, I've started to find most people agreeing that the best distance for portrait is around 10-15 feet (such as this link ). If that is the case, E50 at 10-15 feet is basically a full body shot. It's not half body, not head and shoulder. So if I'm really into those two things, what lens do I really need for NEX?
