Hi I also have the 105 VR and have just bought the 85 f1.8G, which is a stunning lens. However, remember the 85 will only focus down to 0.8m so you would miss out on any real close up lens. I think there is most certainly a place for both as they are very different lenses. I would never part with my 105 unless something really special was released.

Anyway good luck with your purchase if you do go for the 85, it is a gorgeous lens.

Good point on the close-focus ability.  I think it's easy to take for granted close-up shots even when never shooting macro.
