In order of preference, 70-200/2.8VR, 85/1.4D, 135/2DC

The 70-200/2.8VR, to me, is the most amazing lens for portrait work on FX - so much so that I've never been tempted to go for the VRII version. The sharpness wide open is just amazing and in the studio (at f11) I've not seen anything better (except for MF). The zoom range (without breathing) lets me change composition so quickly with having to move position.
