Hi Craig,

I have similar setup which you have listed, as Sigma 35mm 1.4 but instead of 105mm Nikkor I have Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro. And I use it for same purpose as you do - portraits. Every once in a while I am thinking to buy Nikon 85mm 1.8. Since you own it, could you suggest will I need to consider Nikon 85mm 1.8 for portraits if I already have Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro? It's a grate lens and I am happy with portraits but the only difference to Nikon 85mm 1.8 would be weight, not constant min 2.8 and I have to say I like bokeh of 85mm 1.8 a little better.

Will appreciate your valuable comments.
