Re: Some shallow DOF portraits please ? (preferably with NX100)

If you don't mind manual focus, 50mm/f1.4s and 55mm f1.8s are great portrait lenses with a 1.5 crop factor. The Samsung 85mm is of course the choice for autofocus. It is actually pretty reasonably priced now for the amount of glass ( around 600 USD).

This is with a Pentax 50mm/f1.4 with a chinese adaptor. Its not a portrait, and its probably closer than you will be with a portrait shot, but you can at least see the depth of field effects that you might want to get.
