What are your favorite lenses for Portraiture?


Hey everyone. With all of the new lenses that have come out in the past year, I'm curious to hear which lenses are your favorites and why! Right now the new 70-200mm f/2.8 GM II is mine, but it changes from day to day. I'd love to hear your ideas!

There are so many good ones! For me it really depends on context and who I am photographing and why. I love the new FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM II (SEL2470GM2)  and the FE 70-200MM F2.8 GM OSS II (SEL70200GMII ) both amazing and versatile.  The FE 135mm F1.8 GM (SEL135F18GM )  is incredible, and I occasionally use the FE 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 GM OSS (SEL100400GM) because the compression is so cool!


I was such an 85mm portrait shooter and use my 24-70 constantly, but have really been loving using more lenses in my portraiture work such as the 24/35/50 and definitely looking to add the 135 into my toolkit!!
