anyone tried the 105mm VR Micro 2.8 for portraits? and how good is it for portraits?

It'll work but the 85 1.4 or 1.8 is better for portraits.


I haven't used either of these lenses, but in general,  I would tend to agree. My Tamron 90 mm macro lens takes nice portraits, but it's almost TOO sharp. (You don't necessarily want to see every hair follicle in a portrait.) Also, the bokeh (the look of the out of focus areas) isn't great on macro lenses.
