I love it for portraits....its "look" is every bit as attractive as my 85 1.4 but more versatile. I use it as my main walking around lens, event lens, candid lens, formal portrait lens, ballet and concert lens and makes a pretty good weapon if needed.

Stan, I couldn't agree more. Since I traded up from the 70-200 VR I to the VR II, I have made it my every day lens as well, despite the inconvenience of size and weight. It has replaced my 24-70 and does nearly everything as well close up yet provides that extra reach for candid portrait shots. I could almost see using only it and the 14-24 for the spectrum of landscape to portrait shots, but having just acquired my D800, I have to get familiar with this combo before I make that committment. 70-200 is an amazing piece of glass, though.
