Best Portrait Lens?

Hey all,

I want to get a Prime lens for portrait work, and I need to be able to use it for indoor and outdoor activities. What do you guys think is working best for this sort of thing?

Size matters - I'm trying to sell my DA* 50-135mm because it's way too big. My DA* 16-50mm is also way too big. I'm thinking of one of the FAs or DA limiteds would do the best job of this, but wanted some feedback.

This lens will be for portrait use exclusively, and I want it to be able to do indoor with no flash. I've got flashes, but again, I'm trying to de-bulk. I'm sick of carrying stuff around all the time!

Thanks =)
