Best Buy customers often prefer the following products when searching for portrait camera lens.

A portrait lens is a special type of lens that is designed to capture the subject in the center of the frame and to create a depth of field that is narrow enough to focus on that subject alone. The result is a clear, sharp image with a crisp, well-defined subject that stands out from the background.

It also excels in video recording performance with a mechanism that suppresses focus breathing, which was a fatal problem of all interchangeable lenses designed for still image photography. The rugged dust/splash-resistant* design withstands use under harsh conditions even at 14 degrees Fahrenheit. * Dust and Splash Resistant does not guarantee that damage will not occur if this lens is subjected to direct contact with dust and water. • L-Mount is a trademark or registered trademark of Leica Camera AG. • Design and specifications are subject to change without notice.
