After all these years the 50MP is still my favorite portrait lens - especially since I aquired a full frame body.

You should try the Milvus 50 1.4. It's more forgiving of skin but lacks no sharpness. It's one of those few lenses that is tack sharp but buttery soft at the same time. A few years ago I tried almost every 50mm lens that would somehow attach to a Canon, and the 50 Makro was the winner, but I also learned that there is not one 50mm for everything. The Makro Planar was the closest, and I will probably never sell it.

Well, I like it a lot because it has this seemless macro functionality, therefore I have it as my "always on" lens on my FF body. I find it more versatile than a normal 50mm (I have an old Planar 1.4 with the Contax mount that I used with an adapter before I invested into the MP, and I always found the long MFD very anoying on that)

I use this primarily as a landscape lens, but the macro ability is nice to have handy without having a dedicated macro in the bag.
