Re: Lens Suggestion: 60mm f/2.8G

I guess it all depends on the subject matter.  I wouldn't use the 60 for a H&S portrait because of the inherent perspective distortion that such a short lens would have.  For couples or groups, that might be a different story.  I like Nikon Micro lenses but for straight portrait, I like the DC series because you can control the bokeh.  I tend to like long lenses for portraits because of the flattening effect of telephoto lenses.

I still have all of my film cameras from the 1965 Nikon Photomic F (no longer has a meter because it uses mercury batteries) to my last film camera, the F5.  I take them out once in a while if the subject is appropriate.  My favorite is my F2AS.  It's a bit heavier than my Df (especially with a motor drive).
