Recommended Canon Lenses for Portrait Photography

Recommended portrait lenses for photography, for beginners I will recommend canon 50mm f/1.8 lens, for semi-pro and professional photographers 50mm f/1.4 and f/1.2L lens is highly recommended.
Traditionally, photographers have relied upon moderate telephotos for portraits, lenses such as the 85mm f/1.8 USM, the 85mm lenses allow you to back off a little bit from your subject, and still produce frame-filling shots while minimizing the amount of background distractions.
Zoom lenses such as 17-55mm f/2.8 is ideal for portrait and wedding photography for APS-C DSLRs (T3 / 1100D , T3i / 600D, 60D and 7D). Professional L-series Lenses such as 24-70mm and 70-200mm zooms, are versatile choices that allow you to back off and also tend to throw backgrounds out of focus, highly recommended for Full frame DSLRs like 5D series and 1Ds series.
