I regularly shoot with a Tamron 28-75/2.8 for glamour work. After post you can't tell what lense is used anyway.

Lense is only a tolerated spelling of LENS for foreigners, not those from Jersey Shore. ;)

Having an L lens might make you THINK you're a better photographer... then maybe act like one. Or at least maybe charge like one to afford the L...

Perhaps look at one of the defuser/portrait filters you can get to soften the skin a little. Lens does matter, image quality does. Whether is an L or a kit lens, as long as the final product achieves what you have set out to do then it just doesn't matter.

They'll think you look like a weirdo, if they see you at all, and you'll have less control over it.

Stop worrying about equipment.

You don't have to use a L lens for any type of photography, yes, they may have a certain edge in sharpness, but I can get sharp photos with my non-L lenses

Trouble is, you don't know if the people who reply DO know a great deal!

But...most of the replies you've had are sensible... if the image is good then the name on the lens is irrelevant, and as McLuckie said, if you can't get the image you want, get a better lens

this was shot with my 50mm 1.8 and I think it is pretty sharp (for a $100 lens)...... so no, you don't need an L lens.
