For 25+ years the standard for 35mm Film Portraits has been 85mm 1.8 or faster, and 105mm 2.8.

When you switch to DX digital format you would need a 55mm 1.8 for short length portraits, and 70mm 2.8 for longer portraits.

I got taught the exact same thing, so I bought a Sigma 70mm Macro lens -- handy for portraits too.

Just checked the prices on the Nikon Micro Lenses:

60mm -- £399.00; 85mm -- £499.00; 105mm -- £599.00

If I was looking to get another Macro, it would have to be the 105mm rather than the 85mm.
