New to the Sony crew and finding beauty in natural light portraits. What lense do you use for portraits? 35mm or 50mm? Neither? Let me know!

I currently use a 70-200 for my portraits, and 24-70 for boudoir, however my FAVORITE portrait lens of them all is the 85mm F1.8 (SO SHARP). I prefer to switch lenses as little as possible as to minimize the need to clean my sensor. Therefore I keep the zooms on instead of my more favored primes. 🙂

If you have the room, the 135mm GM is incredible.

Welcome! I use the 50/1.2 GM, the 85/1.8, the 135/1.8 GM and the 70-200/2.8 GM2 the most for portraits. It really depends on how you shoot. I do like the 35/1.8 for environmental portraits
