A7: Best portrait lens?
Jun 17, 2014

Looking for a tele to mainly do portraits. Budget of under $800 (preferably including the adapter). Would prefer to have AF as well but not a deal breaker.

I keep hearing the Canon EF 85mm 1.8 USM and Nikkor 85mm 1.8G are two of the best "budget" portrait lenses. Anyone who owns these lenses care to share?

Also, do you all prefer 85mm or something even longer like 100/135mm?

Any samples would be greatly appreciated too! Thanks.
