If you get the K1 and the fa 50mm 1.4, can you let me know how this combo works for portraits?

I want the K1 but, without a good portrait lens right now I am forced to continue shooting in crop with my da 50-135 so I might as well stay with the K5 for now but I will value very much your input.


If you are on a buget the 100mm macro is nice for portraits. If not then the 24-70 and 70-200 are both good as well.

Also, Tamron 90mm and Sigma 70 EX DG are very good and both f/2.8.

Sigma 70 mm will be hard to find but not Tamron 90 mm. Both are tested on Canon FF:
