  • Sigma 85mm f1.4 (considering for a later purchase)

Good lens but jury out on D800. Would consider 85/1.8G which has slightly better resolution.

I have to disagree. The Sigma 85mm F1.4 serves as an awesome portrait lens on my D800 and I can't imagine any other reason to buy a 85mm lens. Stopped down to 2.8 (so that nose, hair and eyes are sharp) - it's amazing! Do you need 1.4? Probably not. Is it nice to have ? You bet! Resolution won't be an issue here either. Go for it, you won't regret it.
