    Prices on Hassy are quite low these days. Don't know if RZ option is much cheaper or not since I haven't seriously looked.

    How about a TLR with a Rolleinar 2?

    I even built you a set up from KEH Check out the BGN Prices the only one I couldn't find on BGN was the 1.9, but if you wait it out you can always find one for a great price =)

    I'm not a portrait shooter, but I have a Bronica SQA that will focus down to 1:1 with the 110 mm f/4.5 macro lens. In the Bronica line, the 180 mm can focus closer than the 150, but I think the 150 is popular for portrait work. Compared with run of the mill 35mm lenses, non-macro MF lenses don't focus in very close, maybe a meter is about it, more like 1.5 with the 150.

    That said, the Bronica sells at fairly attractive prices, but is something of an orphan these days as far as service, as they are no longer made. There are currently some places that repair them, but it's anybody's guess how much longer. I like mine!

    Those are very nicely done, Will. It's amazing what that lens can do. The Canon 50mm is worthless at 1.4 or 1.8 - just no sharpness at the point of focus.

    I would recommend the Mamiya RZ 180mm for a different look, with more compression and less "looming." Portraiture can be done with practically any lens if you use your imagination.

    And that's a great lens if you want to split the difference, and still get a bit of that "roundness" in your portraits.

    Tele-Rolleiflex with and without Rolleinars. Love mine.

    Google for the work Sanders McNew does with this camera. Nice stuff.

    They are very nice. It's amazing how much narrower the DOF looks on your 1.9 versus my 2.8. I want to get a 1.9 eventually but had it in mind more for very low light than portraiture. For that I want something loner. I now have the 150mm for my 645 but haven't seen results from it yet.

    Here's my wife with the 80mm 2.8N wide open. It works ok, but I prefer the perspective of a longer lens from farther out for portraiture. She loves this one but I think it makes her nose look bigger than it really is.
