    I am probably three times as old as you. Been buying caneras since twelve and using them. No GAS here. Smarty remarks have no room in my life.

    How about a sense of humor? Steve meant nothing by that, just trying to have a bit of fun. Tongue in cheek...

    I started this, and do apologize.
    It was just (an attempt at) harmless fun.

    I bet all my stuff against your "etc, etc" that you're not 3 times as old as me, Pumalite.

    A life with no room for smarty remarks must be awfully crowded.

    To change the subject, or rather, return to the subject. Here's some examples of some portraits done by a Japanese photographer, some using 50mm and some with an 85mm. I've tried to find just one good one done with his 12-24mm, but I can't find it. But I agree with the others, the 70-200 range is generally better.
    Film and digital; best of both worlds. JapanesePhotos.Asia.

    I wish I was able to submit some comparison pictures here, comparing my two favorite 35mm lenses (55mm f/2 Pentax and 100mm f/2.8 Pentax). I may pursue this today, as I'm taking the camera out on a road trip with my family. If I get something comparable, I'll post it here.

    But my feeling is that while the 55mm certainly can be used to advantage the 100mm (close enough to 85) flattens the perspective to better appreciate facial features, and they do look slightly more natural. This 'natural' look may not always be what we're looking for, though, and only creativity stands in the way of using any lens. I've seen some extreme wide angle pinhole portraits that are just fabulous.
