If you need AF the best portrait lens for a D800 is the 85/1.8G hands down.

I find it critically sharp edge to edge with very low distortion on the D800E.   It has slightly shorter minimum focal distance letting one get a tighter face shot c/w 85/1.4G, 1.4D or the Sigma.

Mind you my best portrait lens is the 200/2 but this is out of your stated price range.
