Re: Pick "the" 2.8 portrait lens

Personally, I like the second image better. The pose is more pleasing, and they way the subject is holding his head causes the lighting to be more dynamic across his face.

I also find the out-of-focus areas to be slightly smoother; for example, the fixtures on the ceiling have harsher borders in the first shoot, whereas they're creamy in the second.
