Re: Best lens for D800??

Thank you - I really appreciate you taking the time to explain these things - and I understand there's no simple answer!
You're right - I did have an issue with noise with the Olympus, it didn't seem to go so well in low light and I'm sure a wider aperture would have helped that a lot . But even in locations where there was lots of light and no noise, I didn't seem to get the detail that I needed. It was great for regular photographs, but because I'm using them as reference photos to paint from - I zoom right in on them on screen and the resolution wasn't there.
I think I will most likely get the 50mm f1.4, as you previously mentioned - and I'll try to be more aware of perspective distortion in regards to where I'm standing in relation to the sitter.
Thanks again for the advice - it's been a huge help!
