    I have an RB67, I would go for the 127 or 180.

    the 180 as best overall versatile lens. That's the very first lens I ever got for my RB. I added the 90 later to give me something wider. I've not shot with the 150 SF but that's a bit of a specialty lens.

    I vote for the 210mm super contrast and sharpness!

    Depends on what type of portraits you are talking about. For tight head-and-shoulders stuff, the 180 W-N is the cheapest good lens in that length range, and it has nice bokeh. But I think the 210 APO and 250 APO are better, and better choices for that type of shot. For casual portraits, esp. with shallow DOF, the 110 is nice. For environmental portraits, I think the 65 L/A is hard to beat. Super sharp, wide but not too-wide.

    I use my 110/2.8 for most portraits, sometimes the 180/4.5 W-N for headshots using the prism. I'm looking to trade the latter for a 250APO though as I find it a bit short.

    Er yeah, just like EdSawyer says, even agreeing with the use of the 65, especially if you're stuck in close quarters.

    My 180 K/L is very nice.

    The 140 Macro C works well too.

    either 110 or 140 for close portraits. 110 has the largest aperture along other RZ lens.
