I would be interested in hearing what the favorite lenses are, as far as focal length, type of lens etc, for doing head and shoulders portraits in 4x5.I have always used medium format for this type of portraiture. I am thinking something in the 240 or 250 range but there does not seem to be much out there for 4x5 in that range. Most lenses in that range seem to be slight wide angle for 8x10. I recall reading somewhere that a lens with the big image circle for 8x10 will not work well for 4x5. Then there are the tele lens group for 4x5. I have thought about the soft focus lenses as well.
