Wouldnt be my first choice

Id say a m4/3 offering, or sony NEX has some better choices if you want a compact system that has some good portrait length lenses

45mm f1.8 for m4/3 and the Sony 50mm f1.8 OSS are both excellent

Me personally, I just use my DSLR instead with a 70-200 f2.8 zoom, or a 85mm f1.4 for my portrait needs. Thats for formal shooting though, which isn't the type of thing the X100 is used for.

For fun casual shots the x100 is a great camera, captures great images, and is way more fun to carry around than a bag of lenses
