Actually I did that portrait with a MC Rokkor 135 f2.8 almost wide open. The 50 f1.4 lens is also great.

Nikon F3 HP and you're set. The T is nice but the champagne version is just cosmetic and the limited edition P model you will be paying a bit more for a very heavily used pro body.

I have a late generation M-42 SMC 55 f1.8 Takumar and I think I like more than the 50 f1.4 which in itself is a great lens. The only difference, there's no yellowing to contend with.
