Portraiture


So portrait lenses. I don't have any. I've been using my two Helios (58mm f/2 44-2 & 50mm f/1.8 77m-4) for the most eye-catching ones, and my Canon 50mm f/1.8 for just about everything else.

And just when I was about to purchase the Canon 85mm f/1.2L for a whopping two grand, I took a step back and decided to wait on the rumored Sigma 85mm f/1.4 ART-series lens to be released sometime in September. If that turns out to not be the case, I think I'll get the Tamron 85mm f/1.8 with optical stabilization. Both those are half the price of the Canon, and I'm still considering the Helios 40-2, a not-inexpensive 85mm f/1.5 manual to add to my swirly collection.
