I've always been a 105mm guy

105mm is of course very long on a DX body, but I find it still good for portraits... mind you, you must step waaaay back. The Nikkor 10.5/2,5 is every bit as good as any of the top portrait lenses out there. Its problem, however, is a rotating front element, so polarisers are troublesome to use.

Very sharp, wonderful bokeh. I will follow up this photo with what I hope to be a helpful blog post.
