Greetings and Happy Holidays!!
I have an M9, which enjoy using generally for travel photographs. My question here is which which lenses, and what focal lengths, would you recommend for portraits.
Here are some lenses I have tried:
75mm Summicron ASPH, which my subject (wife) thinks is too sharp. I think she is right.
90mm chrome Summicron pre-ASPH made in the early sixties, which, while softer, doesn't pick up the "mood", if that makes sense.
100mm Canon, which I purchased from a Forum member, that of the these three seems to do the best.
Now, anticipating the new M, I have been picking up longer R lenses. I purchased a 100mm APO 2.8, which could work well. I would be curious for opinions of that one.
Also, I have read where the 80mm Summilux-R offers a nice rendering. With the new M and LiveView, that could be a candidate, too. Opinions on this candidate would be appreciate.
Any other recommended focal lengths outside the 80mm-100mm focal lengths I have tried?
Again, thank you for all the help Forum contributors have been.
