Re: Do I really need prime portrait lens?

I may be out of step but I  describe my lens by their focal length rather than the popular perception of what the should be used for, if the shot requires a 85 I will use the 85 no matter what the subject is, I do not approach a shot with the ' I am taking a portrait therefore I need to fit a telephoto lens etc ' I am fortunate to own ( as an amateur ) the 85 1.4 G Nikon lens, this lens I find is used for many of my landscape images, my 35 1.4 G is often used for workplace type portrait  shots, both are producing stunning technical quality images, the artistic quality is open to discussion
