60mm x 1.5 = 90mm FX equivalent field of view. Still not enough telephoto compression for many portrait styles? I disagree. Right around 85mm in FX equivalent field of view is a sweet, sweet spot for many flattering portrait styles. On DX, the 60G is right there.

I might try to hunt one of these down too. And good point on simply dialing down the in camera sharpening if the lens is "too sharp".
