Actually I prefer the 135mm for tight portraits. But I haven't had one since the film days. I found that much less then that had to be handled carefully or your subjects would start looking like Pinnochio. I use my 105vr mostly for butterflies these days but will probably get the Sigma 150 when I don't have something else to spend the money for. The 105vr still does well in a pinch and if other lenses are sharper I wouldn't want them because I really don't want to see what's in their pores. Sometimes the sharpest lens doesn't make the best portrait lens.

Dial down the flash next time if you have to use it.  Nice picture but the flash is too over powering.
