Maybe the youngsters will just get with it and we will see another visual revolution.
210mm on 5x4 (75mm on 35mm?) would be my main lens.
For portraiture, I prefer longer lenses (210 and 360 on 5x4) unless I am trying for a 'dynamic' wide angle effect in which case, I'll generally reach for the widest glass that I can get my hands on.
