D-FA 100mm F2.8 WR for portraits?

For a while I have been wanting to pull the trigger on the FA 77mm Ltd, but I have read some reviews that indicated that there are 100mm Macros which are comparable. I have also wanted to get a Macro lens and I figured that I could get a lens that can do both Macro and portrait photos. So...

EDIT: Does anyone have some portraits taken with the D FA 100mm that they could post here?

Are there other Macros that I should be looking at?

Thanks for your help.
