    I have a D70 and D200. Used to have an F5 but luckily sold it before film went tits up. I shoot mostly landscape and some wildlife. But I'd be lost without my 2.8 70-200 VR lense. I also have a 1.5 teleconverter. A 200 would be great for a tight shot of the faces without getting too close. Less distortion that way too.

    But where's the lighting? You need fill flash man. I have one that feeds the metering.

    Ah, you do have flash equipment. I don't shoot people much but one of the sync settings of the flash can reduce or eliminate it. Front or rear curtain, I forget.

    Yes indeed, a flash is a must have for faces.

    You have a better choice. Send them to Putin. The cameras, I mean.

    If you shoot once in four years, nobody will like your pictures, I think :)
