Is there an adapter that will work for either or both? I am trying to figure out if there is an adapter out there that will fit either one on the Canon EOS R.

If not, which lenses are recommended for portrait photography for the EOS R?

Thank you.

As to lens recommendations...any lens that has the portrait features you are looking for that can be mounted onto the EOS R. As there are only 4 RF lenses at the current time, it may be necessary to go into EF territory. However, no strict "recommendation" would make sense - just use a lens that fits somehow and that you like. – flolilolilo Dec 14 '18 at 10:49

    The EF 40mm f/2.8, EF 50mm f/1.8 STM, and EF 50mm f/1.4 are Canon's equivalent lenses (re: focal length and maximum aperture) to the Nikon lenses listed in the question. They're all very affordable lenses and will give you fully functional autofocus and aperture control when used on an EOS R with a simple EOS EF to EOS R adapter. Adapting lenses from the same system (in this case: EOS) is a much different animal than adapting lenses cross platform (such as Nikon F to EOS R). Everything works as it should, the only function of the adapter is to add the needed length to the rear of the lens. – Michael C Dec 14 '18 at 21:20

Any adapter that can handle the Nikon "F" mount should handle either of those, albeit as manual focus lenses in both cases. Assuming that you do mean the 40mm Micro Nikkor G, you will need an adapter with a built in aperture slider, like https://www.adorama.com/kalaeosrnkg.html. Be aware that you'll have to manage the aperture manually in either case, the aperture dial on the camera will not work, nor will the camera even be aware of the aperture selected.
