The D780 is an excellent choice of camera to capture the essence of others. There are tons of great lenses to choose from, and the JPEG engine does a great job capturing skin tones. The camera's updated autofocus should also be accurate whether you're using either the optical finder or the rear screen, but be aware that you only get eye detect on the latter and you could need to calibrate your lenses for the former to get the best results.

Keep in mind that, being a DSLR, the D780 is fairly sizable and could look 'professional' to some subjects and intimidating to others. High-end studio portraitists may also wish for more resolution, but we think the D780's 24 megapixels will serve most users just fine indeed.
