The 50-135 would be an excellent portrait lens. You've got a range of focal length to play with.

bought 3 : )

I ended up buying the 3 cosinon lenses
Think they will arrive monday - if i am lucky - also ordered a split image focusing screen with micro prism from jinfinance.
I think it's gonna be good - they are pk-a so they will work with p-ttl...

Next lens will be either 24-70 or 28-75 2.8 from sigma/tamron.
Or maybe 10-17 fisheye or a fisheye prime.... I like it wide : )

Thanks for the input everyone - I learned a lot....

Btw that 43mm ltd portrait looks stunning - stops me dead in my tracks everytime I scroll down...

His wife thinks so too. In fact, it is apparently the best photo ever taken of him. And it was just a "snapshot" as we waited for my bride to show up at the wedding.
