2000$ budget for portrait lens set up
Feb 15, 2014

I currently have a Canon 6D. I'm looking to do some more portraiture work such as kids, family, and engagement shoots. I'm currently budgeting myself to 2000-2500$.

Set up 1:

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 is ii

Canon 35mm f/2 is usm for wider/enviornmental shots

Maybe a Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM

Set up 2:

Canon 35mm f/2 is

Canon 50mm f/1.4

Canon 85mm f/1.8

Canon 135 mm f/2

If budget still permits a 1.4x teleconverter for that extra reach with 135mm.

If you have any other recommendations/set up within the same budget. I am all ears.

Thank you,
