I am also hoping that I can use both AF and MF lenses as this is what I understood this particular camera is capable of. Given this, which lens would you recommend next for quick and light portrait work? I do not like or want zooms at this point and can't afford the AF-S lenses. TIA
You can't go wrong with an 85mm f/1.8 or 105mm f/2.5 for portraits. I know you said you have no interest in zooms, but the 75-150 Series E is excellent as is the 50-135 AIS.
