The big problem I've had with that is that you can't really compose when zoomed in, and with like an 85 1.4, once you zoom out and recompose there's a pretty good chance the camera has moved enough to knock the subject out of that razor thin depth of field.

Plus shooting with a DSLR and lens out at arms' length never feels anywhere near natural to me.
