Re: Do I really need prime portrait lens?

I have Nikon 70-200mm f4 VR
Will primes like Nikon 105mm DC or Nikon 85mm 1.4 produce a much better results for portraits? I do not think these would be sharper but will bokeh be that different to justify buyung a new lens?


It all comes down what your own "demands" are but in my case: Yes you need a dedicated prime lens, I have the 85 F/1.4 myself.
