There are two snapshots in this post from two different lenses both at 2.8. I have uploaded 2 full sized images on DPR for your review. These images are right out of the d700 iso 3600, NO post processing.

Which lens do you think did a better job for portraits? 1st or 2nd one here?

1st =Tamron 90mm macro, 2nd 105 DC.

The first is sharpness fighting blur, and the second bland blur but seems like spherical blur.

I don't like either very much, but at ISO 3600, They are both washed out and could have been taken with a point and shoot. John,
