This post certainly stirred the pot a little!

The topic seemed pretty well cover at this point. The only thing I would add is that the 60mm macro, despite being standard portraiture focal length is probably a bit too slow and far too sharp to be a true portrait lens.

I got all 3 of the existing primes and I bought the 60mm with an intention of it being a portrait. Unfortunately, it picks up every bit of imperfection and requires reduction in clarity in post. I am hoping the 56 f/1.2 to be slightly softer. Coming from Canon L background, I never really thought I would complaint about a sharp lens but the 60mm is something else all together.
