    I don't do a lot of portrait photography but the D500 more than covers my needs.

    I got out for a little bit with the D500 and an older AF-S 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G kit lens. I really enjoy this budget lens.

    By the way... what's the secret to posting images that look like the originals? All these JPEGS I converted from RAW files are very sharp but look very soft once I upload them. This applies to images I attach to e-mails, too. They always seem to look poor. (2020 MacBook Pro, BigSur 11.6.5, Safari 15.4)

    You may need to apply a bit of shapening to the JPEG after it is resized for the web.

    Those JPEGs that I've resized for the web still look perfectly sharp in their reduced size. When I upload them to the web or to e-mail messages, they lose it somehow.

    I think about this every time I see someone post a tack-sharp image on the forum. I have plenty of tack-sharp images, but it seems like I've never been able to have an uploaded image look that way...

    I know what you mean. Just the export to JEPG affects the color and sharpness and no telling what the compression and decompression of the site does. Many images are not that sharp but have good subject isolation and a pleasing background. The tip about sharpening after resize was from a video by Steve over a Back country Gallery.
    Maybe post up an example and get ideas from others.

    Since I have both FX and DX bodies, I prefer to use my DX with telephoto lenses and FX for landscape and portrait. The problem with using DX for portraits is the crop factor. Typically the range between 85mm and 125mm is used for head & shoulder portraits. But because of the crop factor, using a lens in that range on DX means having to back up a lot further. And that can cause problems when shooting in a room that isn't too long. So the consensus is to use a 50mm lens on a DX body since it gives a field of view of 75mm. Unfortunately, the perspective distortion isn't changed when using a 50mm on a DX body vs. FX.

    What I mean by that is this ... the range from 85mm to 125mm compresses facial features to a pleasing look. The nose doesn't look quite as long as it would when shooting the same portrait on a DX body with a 50mm lens. Even the shape of a face changes depending on the focal length used. If there is a lot of room to back up, then DX can be great for head & shoulder portraits if able to use an 85mm lens or longer.

    Landscape won't be as noticeable for differences especially when shooting stopped down although the same differences in perspective distortion will apply.
