if this indeed is supposed to be a portrait lens , why did not make it equivalent to a 80mmor 85mm and ..more importantly .. why the heck a macro lens

Way, way back in the Dark Ages when I shot 4x5" portraits the standard lens for a single person was the 210mm, which has the approximate angle of view as a 70mm lens on a 35mm camera.

The macro is for ubersharpness I hope.
