Recently someone told me that they were seriously updating their lenses and wanted my recommendation on what portrait lens I would recommend. I couldn’t really tell her exactly what lens to buy because I don’t do enough portraiture to be 100% confident, but I could point her to this website which I have found to be extremely helpful in finding detailed information about Canon’s lens lineup: The-Digital-Picture.com. I frequent this sight all the time.
But I am curious. For anyone reading this blog, which lens would you recommend as the best portrait lens?
