This question already has an answer here:
I know that the lenses I am going to talk about are not comparable as one is prime and another is zoom and one is f/1.4 and other is f/4.5-5.6 But still want to have opinions before buying either of two. I shoot with Nikon D7000 and 18-105 mm mostly family portraits.
I am planning to buy either Nikon 50 mm 1.4 G or Nikon 70-300 mm IF VR both are simialar priced at my location
My inclination is towards 70-300 as it covers the focal length gap. On the other side I want crisp sharp photos.
So question is can I get the similar or some what closer results with 70-300mm as compared to 50 mm.
