Best Portrait Lens

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I currently use a 12 -24 nikon lens for underwater portraits and a 60mm on my d300.

 

I have question for everyone.

 

If i were to buy another lens to only do peoples portraits underwater (full body and faces)(in pool and behind waves in the ocean), What would i choose?

 

I was thinking a AF-S Nikkor 50mm F1.4G or a AF-S Nikkor 35mm F1.8G

 

Could everyone please please give me your opinion.

 

Thanks

Scott

I have been very happy with my signa 17-70 macro, it's very versatile.

I like the flexibility of a zoom lens so out of those I would opt for the 16-85 and if your going to use any of these behind a dome port the you will need a diopter.

Hi,

 

I own all of them (Sigma 17-70mm, Nikon 35mm, Nikon 50mm, 16-85mm) and my favorite is the prime lens 50mm f/1.4.

I love it for portraits.

The 35 mm is cool but the 50 mm is by far much better. I am not a big fan of the 16-85.

However, I never used it underwater, but the 50 mm is a perfect portrait lens with a nice and soft bokeh.

 

Your 60 mm should be even better than the 50 underwater which has a poor focus distance if you compare it to your 60 mm.
