Primarily for portraits. Its very sharp and is a prime lens(single focal length). Primes are always sharper than range lenses. And then it has that magical F1.8

If you will be traveling alot with the camera gear for photography - weight of the tripod will be a big factor - in that case i'll suggest a carbon fiber monopod.

If you wont be moving too much - Benro or Manfrotto tripod. They are costly but cheaper ones are not worth. There are lot many discussions on the similar subject on jjmf site.

70-300 would be better.

I had Benro tripod. But carrying a tripod on your back, especially during a small trek could be very cumbersome. If you fly frequently, an average tripod wont fit in the average suitcase. And you can carry it as a handbag either. So you need to pass it thro special security counter etc. I have shifted to carbon fibre monopod which is quite lighter.

I shoot 90 % of the images with the monopod and 10 % with tripod.

Bro I would say dont go for tripod now if u dont want to try those creative low light shots ....I found tripod just useless with light lenses like 70-300, 55-200, 55-300, 50mm, 18-55 when using it for general purpose....

I think u should get at least 10k and get a good tripod with ball head...carbon fiber will put u back by 15k+
