| Re: Best portrait/head shot lens for the D600 |
For what you\'re describing I\'m reaching for the Zeiss 100/f2.0 Distagon every time, but it isn\'t cheap, and it\'s manual focus. But amazing as a portrait lens in every single way. One of the most incredible optics ever. Apparently the new 135/f2 is even more impressive, but it\'s also hard to find even new, and likely more costly.
On a budget, give the 105/f2.5 AIS Nikkor a go. Isn\'t up to the Zeiss build standard, but optically it\'s a gem and a relative bargain cost-wise.
For autofocus lenses, the 85 Nikkors - particularly the f1.4\'s - are good, and if you don\'t mind using a macro, the 150 Sigma EX and the 105VR Nikkor are both great optically, if not quite where the Zeiss is for bokkeh.
