Best Portrait lens
May 17, 2007

I plan to use this "portrait" and "full length portrait" lens on a d80. I've narrowed it down to 2 lenses (but perhaps I'm wrong):
1) 85mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor
2) 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor

OK, now # 2 is more expensive BUT it also gives me the option to do my close-up non portrait pics BUT primarily I want a good portrait lens. Am I loosing anything for portraits it I get the 105mm
Thanks for your comments

Richard
