Re: new d700, what lense

Honestly, it depends a bit on who you are shooting nude. If it is a wife/girlfriend or a seasoned professional, the Tamron 28-75 would be great. If you are swapping pose for prints for people trying to build their first portfolio, a longer lens will be helpful to keep the working distances more comfortable for the model.

I would start with the Tamron, and then examine your work. If you are always up against the long end, consider an 85 1.8. If you are wanting to drop backgrounds out more in the middle of the range, consider a 50 1.8
