Todays article on finding a portrait lens

This was a very good article. Very informative and interesting for a beginner like myself. Serendipity as I have been playing with and old Pentax SMC 50mm Prime lens and I immediately noticed most o the qualities mentioned here. I don't know if that lens would be considered one to try in this setting but it was a great learning experience for me and this timely article fits so well with that. Thanks Thomas

It's definitely a lens to try. Even the cheapest M50/2 can take a good portrait shot. You can overlook it for all the "better" lenses. They are nice but a lot of what makes portraits is the subject. If you happen to have the world's best portrait lens on the camera, it might add an extra something.
