Try the Nikkor 180mm F/2.8 AI-S ED , it's just simply awesome on the D3, you can shoot it wide open all day and al night, its just simply sharp, contrasty, and with creamy bokeh. The crop is a bit tight similar to the 135mm F/2 DC on a DX sensor.

My portrait lenses in order of preference IQ only

180mm F/2.8 ED AI-S
105mm F/2.5 AI-S
85mm F/1.4
70-200mm F/2.8 VR
