How about letting her decide?

I know surprises are nice, but photographers are a weird lot. We have preferences that realte directly to our art and vision and technique.

So maybe you go to the camera store and buy a $500 gift certificagte, and she can spend it in a month or two or three, when she decides what she both wants and needs to meet her style.

Me? for portraits a 17-55 Canon or any of several 17/18 - 50mm lenses would be better.

Or the Tamron 28-70 f2.8, plus the lens that came with the camera.

What's a portrait, incidentally? Looks like a pssport? Churchill by Karsh, withthe chair, or Hemmingway, up clos
BAKe?
