I assume you're on dx body. nikkor 105mm 2.5 ai or ais is entry level lens for price, but top level performance lens for headshots. However on crop body it can be bit too long for general portrait photography.

If your camera body can AF with screw driven lenses - in my experience 35-70 2.8 AF-D is best solution for portraiture combined with crop sensor, even though it was designed for completely different purpose - as normal zoom on film bodies. This lens renders women skin simply amazing.

I never used 85mm 1.8g, but from what I saw, it could be excellent for your intended use.
