    What disadvantage? Never had any disadvantage using macro lenses for portraiture.
    Too sharp? Crap bokeh? Just more unfounded bullshit that just gets repeated imo.


    Pentax DFA 100mm f/2.8 Macro

    Honestyl though, I rather have my images SHARPER than SOFTER...

    Sharp images can be easily PP-ed to be soft... but its a lot harder to PP soft into sharp... Which is why I'm hunting for a macro lens now!

    60mm f2 or the 85mm f3.5?

    Just curious about using those close up adapters like Raynox 250, has anyone tried taking portrait shots using it before and how's the quality like?

    Erm, close up adaptors are for u to do macro using normal lenses. You probably can't focus on a person for portraits as you lose ability to focus to infinity.
    Unless you want to take pictures of the pores on the face
