However IMO 50/2 is a bit short and/or slow for traditional portraiture, especially since the J-8 isn't great wide open. You can get a far better (but bigger) SLR lens for about the same money, or you can pay more and get a better, faster (or longer) rangefinder lens more suited to portraiture.

Thanks again for your answer.

Actually, I really love the 50mm focal length. But it's maybe because I haven't tried a good 85mm prime yet

I'm just looking for a tiny lens that will complement my Rokkor 50/1.4, but you're probably right : I'll have to spend (a lot) more money if I want to have the same result :
