I'm a little surprised about how many people bash the new Nikkor 85mm, saying it's not a good portrait lens, or on the other hand praise it's sharpness based on the MTF graph, without having seen a single picture yet!

I'd say let's all wait 'til it hits the stores and we see some actual shots taken with it, then we can still bash it.

I'm surprised too, considering Nikon calls it a MACRO lens not a PORTRAIT lens. It seems to be a good cheaper alternative to the 105 VR. It could be the lens that finally replaces my "plastic fantastic" Phoenix (Cosina) 100/3.5 without breaking the bank.
