I prefer the Mark I (the original version) for portraiture. The muted microcontrast at all apertures gave it bad reviews but this is an excellent feature for portraiture in my opinion. You don't see all the way down every pore. Women especially like a little bit softer portrait.

Not only this, it is quite a bit smaller and lighter than the Mark II, and quite a bit less money too.

I bought both of these through Adorama.
