The 56 should be a great length and adequately fast. However, as portraits are relatively easy to manually focus, there is a ton of cheap and not so cheap old glass around. I have both the Nikon 55 1.2 and Canon 55 1.2. Both about 230-260 on eBay or FM and commonly for sale. Excellent optics for wide open portraits!

I am considering getting a canon 85 1.2 fd. Yes, big, but that lens is legendary, at least the EF versions are...

The upcoming 56mm f/1.4 will yield "basically" an 85 f/2.

The current 60 macro does just fine for that focal length, although it is a tad slower and bitingly sharp.

Well done.

I've been using a Nikon 100E and the F60 2.4. Both are great but I yearn for something in the middle and a bit faster.
I think I'm going to give the Samyang 85mm a shot as soon as the budget allows.

And I wouldn't mind an AF Fujinon 85mm 1.8.

i've got the vivitar brand of the 85mm f1,4, and it's great especially for the price. mine isn't for the x-mount, however.
