That's before final crop.

Still, if I were to get seriously into the portrait business, I might buy one or two primes in the 85mm to 200mm focal lengths (full-frame) for the added flexibility in that medium. I see the point, but don't shoot enough in that genre (I'm usually going for realism) that I feel a need for such a lens.

Beautiful portrait btw - love the BW render
