This lens is such a speciality lens you have to know you are doing portraits or need this focal length all the time.

I know it's another specialized use, but I use my 85mm 1.8 full frame Nikon lens a lot for indoor sport. At an indoor velodrome it's perfect for getting frame-filling shots of rider and bike and, with a bit of practice you can get some fantastic short DOF effects.
