For family and kids - ill prefers 35-40mm for everyday family shots, and 50 or 85mm on special occasions but my Japanese missus prefers 24mm or 28mm. a.k.a Japan's 'Small Face' Obsession lol

Let's ask which is your favourite 35mm fullframe and 44x33 medium format portrait lens on medium format and why?

FF lens + GFX = I think my fav. is Canon 85mm f1.2L USM v1 and Tamron 35mm f1.8 SP VC.

Truly Medium format lens = I think ill go with Pentax-D FA 645 55mm F2.8

Using full frame as example

For family and kids the lens I love is the GF 45  fast focus, light in weight and is 2.8.  For portrait  sessions for single or multiple people esp for great bokeh and separation THE GF TRIAD 110 2.0 the 801.7 and the new 55 1.7 (Take your Pick).
