Based on you experience, what lenses would you recommend for photographing people?

In reconsidering your question -- I didn't mean to be dismissive in my response. So, I'll go out on a limb with recommendations, based on my experiences:

  • Outdoors: Panasonic 45-150mm
  • Indoors, with tripod: Panasonic 45-150mm
  • Indoors, hand held: Panasonic 20mm f/1.7; Panasonic-Leica 45mm f/2.8

Hiya Rich

Fine example, but rather than specific lenses, I would suggest that focal lengths/apertures would be more helpful to all.

I wouldn't attempt to do that! Too many variables. As I indicated in my earlier post, it's such an individual thing, so that each person should test to evaluate the results at different focal lengths!

See my new thread, which shows one person taken at different focal lengths.
