Adapted options

Well I will be the crazy one. I tried a 110mm f2 and could have been that the copy was crap, but I didn't like the focal length as well.

I found my super cheap (paid $100) Rokinon 85mm f1.4 lens to be much better and is crazy sharp. Biggest problem with it is chromatic aberration. But I liked the focal length so much that I bought a Tamron 85mm f1.8 lens with stabilisation. Its not as sharp as my Rokinon, but its chromatic aberration free. If I could afford it I would probably try the Fujifilm 80mm lens.

Alternatively, I also like the Sigma 135mm f1.8 lens, from the imags I have seen. I don't own it. That might be the best head shot adapted lens for GFX.
