What about the new 24-120 f4 zoom? The aperture is wide enough to manually focus and the long end allows the photographer to make a very tight crop. I wouldn't want to use anything wider than 24mm in a studio.

For Portrait work i would use minimum focal range of 85mm to give good perspective and minimal distortion. Or 105mm, 135mm, 200mm, 300mm if you have the available space, If shooting on 35mm digital. But of course that is me on what i would use . Everyone is different and has different needs. The Nikkor 300mm f2.8 is superb for portrait work as is the Nikkor 105 f2.8 Micro and Nikkor 70-200 F2.8 VR probably the best zoom for portraits. all produce lovely Bokeh .Wink

I have got my new lights set up now, and used my ever willing model, Oliver for the first go....the Wife declined!!!
For this shot I used the Sigma 105mm f2.8, seemed to work well.
