But Will ... your 85/2 is a 170/2 on the E-M5. Not exactly portrait then!

thanks for the recommendation.

Which is why I'm now sticking to digital Zuikos for these new bodies. Were the HG line is not so expensive

Incidentally, 170mm f/2 is *very* useful when you're covering an event where there is no good amount of light, and you're confined in one place (like a mass).

Excellent point. I use a Leica Elmar 9cm f/4 right now for that purpose (light, fast-ish for that FL), but am seriously considering a Jupiter-9 or a Serenar 85mm f/2.

You have to think of legacy lenses as being "repurposed": your 50mm isn't a normal lens anymore, but it's a kick-ass portrait lens, 90mm becomes moderate-to-long telephoto, etc.

Thinking in 135-format terms is so 20th century

(I say this in jest, obviously)
