    My favorite portrait lens is the Zeiss 85/1.4 (in Rollei QBM mount). The aperture blades are damaged, and not even DAG could find spare parts for this lens, so I use it wide open at all times. I love using this lens now with digital cameras, such as the EP2 and the EPL1. Both have IS for 3-4 stops, and both have focus magnification 7-10X, which helps tremendously with focusing a 85/1.4 with 170mm perspective wide open in the shade (since the lens is wide open).
