I know this topic has done the rounds a few times, and apologies if it's a bit of a re-hash. I've read through lots of posts but those posters seemed to have different equipment/circumstances which might have affected people's responses.
I currently have a 7D with a 15-85mm lens which has been perfect for travel/street photography up until now. Recently though, I've been asked to do a few portraits and am thinking of doing more of this in future. My current lens isn't really going to be up to the job and would love some advice as to what lens the pros on here think I should get next.
I prefer a more close-up, headshot style and have been thinking about a 50mm 1.4 (which is also roughly my price range). I had a play with a friend's 50mm 1.2 and loved the clarity of a prime compared to the zoom (though I appreciate that one is also probably about 3 times the price of the one I can afford). Any thoughts?
Thanks a lot!
