dont forget a portrait lens is not just about bokeh and field of view

Right. What I didn't describe before is that this is basically for my wife and she takes baby pictures. So, it's not exactly like typical portraits. She uses decorations and I think bokeh and FOV matter there.

portrait lenses should offer pleasing compression

this is far far more critical

no lens under 70mm is acceptable for portrait work

regardless of format or sensor size

This is interesting. Thanks for saying that because I thought the focal length of the lens that I need has to be calculated based on the format. So, I have to use a 70+ mm even though it's a 2x crop factor. Is that correct? won't that be too tele for portrait?
