The 135 f/2.8 (or, if you want to spend more and can find it, f/2) is an excellent portrait lens.

I have the 2.8. Optically, I probably prefer my 105 f/2.5 more, and mechanically the 135 has a very stiff focus ring, which I think is an issue with the 135 f/2.8. But I also got it for $85, so no complaints, I guess.

ETA: You can routinely find the 2.8 version for well under $200; the f/2 version will set you back about $500, if not more.
