I prefer the Sigma 85mm f1.4 to the 2 lenses mentioned, although a 105mm would be nice. I found the 105VR was quite punchy for portrait, very capable but not the best. I like f1.4 too. I think the Sigma 85 is a much nicer lens for portrait. I also think the bokeh is a little bit better than the Nikon f1.8G.
If you want macro too it would be a differnt answer of course!
