Re: Best Portrait Combo?
In reply to teseg, 9 months ago

I have had a Sony RX1 for 1 1/2 years and absolutely love it for all manner of photography.  So much so to the point that 95%+ of all my 10K+ photos since it was purchased have come from this lovely machine and several months ago I sold off all my cropped sensor equipment.  When I would take crop sensor pictures the malleability and quality of the files were clearly inferior in many ways.  The RX1 sensor + lens really makes an unbeatable combo.  HOWEVER... I never have been into shooting portraits... until recently.

More recently my wife and son have started to appreciate my photographs and more and more have been asking I photography them or their friends at various functions.  With a 35mm FL lens I have finally found the RX1's limitation.

What is the ideal camera body and lens for amazing portrait photography (make + model)?  I'm interested in a FF body and ~90mm lens.  Suggestions and samples appreciated.
