I'd wonder, though, if I'd trust any autofocus system to determine the exact point which I wanted to focus on with an f1.4 lens at normal "portrait" distances. To my mind this requires:
1. a stationary subject
2. a manual focus rangefinder with a long effective base length rangefinder. Only a Leica would be suitable for this...

Depending on your tolerance for old equipment, you might have good success with a prewar Contax RF. The rangefinder baseline is huge on a II or a III. A one-inch difference in subject difference (say, the end of the nose versus the eye) makes quite a difference in terms of degrees of barrel rotation. I was pretty well shocked at the focussing accuracy of my II when I got back my first test roll.

Hope this helps,
