Re: Advice on pick for DX - 60mm Micro or 85 1.8G

If you want a portrait lens I'd get an 85mm (assuming you mean head & shoulder portrait). If you want a lens that can do portrait and macro the 60 has some merit, but I'd want a longer lens for both so I'd probably prefer a Tamron 90.

My favourite 85 is the Sigma 85mm f1.4. The Nikon 85mm f1.8G is also a lovely lens, and whilst I prefer the Sigma the Nikon is much smaller, lighter, and easier to carry.
