6ft / 2m

2m is my rule. Of course rules can be broken. Mid telephoto on a DSLR gets youheadshots at that distance.

But in general this is NOT a headshot camera.

The weakest, easiest, least impresive portrait is one shot at a very wide aperture with a completely blurred background. Any idiot with a DSLR and a telephoto lens can do that.

I wrote a blog post about this subject almost exactly one year ago.
