I am looking to start as a portrait photographer and am struggling to decide what lens line up to start with.

Would you:

Option A

  • 50 1.8
  • 70-200 2.8

Option B

  • a trio of 35/50/85 primes

Option C

  • Something different 

The 70-200 2.8 for most brands is just as expensive as a trio of primes but is a lot more versatile. With primes you get better low light performance.
