I mainly do portraits and use a phase one p40+ with 645df. Having flirted with the idea of the Leica s2, I've decided to stick with the phase one in the vain hope that the options for portrait shooters will improve. So I'm going to expand on my lens collection.
I'm looking for a 120mm lens for 2 purposes. Firstly for close up portraiture and secondly to use for copy stand work documenting various slides, 6x6 negatives and old photographs.
My question is this. What 120mm lens would you go for? I really like the idea of the 120mm auto focus for its practicality for the portrait side of things. However has anyone out there had real world use with it? Secondly there seem to be lots of manual focus variations of the 120mm, are there any to avoid and any hidden bargains?
Thanks for the input.
