As a corporate pro, I shoot Micro Four Thirds

I do all my corporate portrait & headshot work with a Panasonic GX8 and 35-100/2.8. Unless you want to print larger than 24", Micro Four Thirds' 20MP is really all you need in terms of resolution. Corporate work doesn't require super-shallow DoF (who wants the tip of the nose out of focus?), but if I ever want shallower, I slap on my Olympus 42.5mm f1.8. I'm not into the whole "just the eyelashes in focus" fad.

Panasonic's face/eye-detect AF works really well.
