"A bit"?

Try download some of dpReview's test photos - and hold on to your socks!

Instead of a fixed length portrait lens... if you have the courage, perhaps check out the old 28-70mm f/2.8. I'm surprisingly pleased with how very pleasing portraits are with this lens.

Way more versatile than fixed and with seriously good resolution.

Just make sure to find trusted dealer with a noiseless motor...

Oh! and it will help you grow some muscles!
