YongNuo 100mm F2 Best Budget Portrait Lens of 2017?

Many portrait photographers prefer the 100mm and 105mm focal length over the 85mm length. Nikon released an interesting and expensive 105mm F1.4 lens that has received a lot of praise. However, 100mm at F2 still produces a very desirable level of depth of field. This lens has far less elements than Nikon’s, but that sometimes produces a character that some photographers find more pleasing for portraiture than the look provided by modern lenses.

At an expected price of $170, this might turn out to be the best budget portrait lens of 2017.
