    Dear all,
    I have two a6000 questions

    1. Is there any news regarding a new prime portait lens or a zoom lens at the portrait range over 50-150?
    2. Which are the current grips we have and which one you think is best?

    Regards
    Alex

    Latest lens in that range is the 90mm 2.8 macro FE lens. Covers full frame, but should work on APS-C as well.

    Otherwise, for the A6000, you have the choice of 50/1.8 APS-C, or 55/1.8 FE.

    50/1.8 APS-C is by far the cheapest. The FE lenses might be overkill, and very expensive, but are definitely superior lenses.

    I don't own any grips - can't help you there.

    Does the 90mm 2.8 macro FE lens work as 90+45=135mm at my a6000? I do not even want to check the retail price..

    Yes, the FE 90mm lens on an APS-C camera will have a field of view comparable to a 135mm on "full-frame".
    Let me do that for you :). In The Netherlands one well-reputed online store quotes € 1149. Maybe the E 55-210mm is still your best option, especially when you don't want to spend a truckload of money.
