   A lot depends on the way you do portraits, what sort of perspective you
favor, DOF, your working room, etc. etc. There's lots of lenses in the OM
line-up that will do just fine for portraiture. Don't forget that 
Cartier-Bresson did most of his portraits (which tend to be environmental)
with a 50mm.
  So..in the OM line-up...you'd have the family of 50's (1.8, 2.0, 1.4,
1.2), the 85/2, 90/2, 100/2.8 & 2.0, 135/3.5 & 2.8, 180/2.8 & 2.0, 
200/4, the 35-70's, 35-80, 35-105, 75-150, 65-200, 100-200, 85-250 etc.

   But I'd recommend --- unless you have specific requirements ---
   the 85/2.0, 100/2.8 or 100/2.0
