what is the best lens for portraits – WRONG QUESTION – truth about lenses and portraiture

what is the best lens for portraiture?

This is the wrong question to ask. It is all about your intention how to make your portrait look and it is all a bout the focal distance. It is nonsense to compare this lens with the other, the reason for so many videos and articles on the matter is just to initiate discussion about specific lenses and ignore the fact the camera is just the tool. the portrait in its essence is not about which equipment you use, it is how you want to capture it and what do you want to say with it.
