For me an old full frame and a 50mm works just fine for portraits...when I was in the pursuit of a camera+combo lens for portrait

I went for a canon 5d and a 50mm 1.4, can't afford the latest but I knew I wanted FF for second thought on that. Even is a 2005 camera I'm really happy with the purchase for my family/friends portraits.

If money wasn't an issue for me, I will probably go for a 6D+85mm.

by the way do the sony rx1 worked for you at 75mm crop mode?


Some samples here:

Thanks for sharing.  The RX1 75mm crop is fine for digital display, but brings the picture size down to 5MP or something... which is fine for printing smaller pictures.  However, in doing so one loses quite a bit of depth of field... like losing  a few stops in that regard.
