Re: Choosing another portrait lens

If you want mostly 1 person portrait, upper body / head+ shoulders, then go for the 50 (on crop)

If you want full body 1 person (like siting) or 2-3 persons head+shoulders, then go for 30mm f/1.4 or 35mm f/2 or maybe even 28mm f/1.8

35mm on full frame is the most versatile focal for interior multi person portraits. The equivalent would be the 24mm but the 24mm f/2.8 is not fast enough and the 24mm f/1.4 is too expensive.

Sadly, there is not a real equivalent of the FF 35mm f/2 for crop.
