I'm going to be shooting a skin care commercial where I need to shoot tight shots of a models face. I need to show crows' feet, etc.... I have the following lenses for our D700:

17-35mm f/2.8
50mm f/1.4
80-200mm f/2.8


I can't get close enough with the 50mm or the telephoto. I "think" I might be able to with the 17-35mm, but I'm guessing there's a better lens I should be using for shots like this.

Thanks in advance!
