Thumbs up Hello

Hello all ! Newbee from the cold north .
I rescently moved up from coolpix 8800 to the d200 and spending long days trying to get to the surface ..... The lens I bought with the camera was the 12 - 24mm dx .
I need a new lens for Portraits any suggestions ?

Regards
Sigmund

Re: Hello

Hi Sibbe - welcome to Pixalo. I think your move from the Coolpix to the D200 is in the 'one giant leap' category, rather than the 'one small step'!

There are some lens reviews here.

You might like to consider the Nikkor 50mm f1.8, an absolute bargain at 70 in the UK, or 60 on-line. This gives a 35mm equivalent to about 75mm, and is fast enough to give a lot of control of the depth of field. The longest lens that is commonly used for portraits is 70-80mm (105-135 equivalent). Obviously, your studio space will also have an influence.

There are zooms that will cover this range, but most zooms will not be as good as primes for quality.

I'm sure that other members will throw their hats in the ring soon.

Re: Hello

It is hard to beat the value of the 50mm F1.8 So I'll second that one.

I have the 60mm F2.8 Micro that I use for portraits and for up close. Very sharp lens.
