Micro lenses can be a little too sharp for portraits, and with the OP seeking to go with jpegs and as close to out of the camera as possible, it could be an issue. I've tried it with a 105 2.8 AIS on film and with both a 55 2.8 AIS and 60 2.8 D digitally -- I've found that flaws can be revealed a bit too much.

Interesting idea. You are right I shoot a lot of older women and "extra sharp" isn't always great! I'll keep this lens in mind.
