Re: The Best Portrait Lenses?

Phew, I think you have hit them all

Absolutely near-perfect selection of great lenses . . . I tend to prefer the 85 length on DX, favouring the 105/135 for FX.

To your list, I would add the 180mm f/2.8 AF on DX or FX, for its bokeh and relative sharpness @ f/2.8.

Also, I use the 70-180mm for portraits - colour rendition, sharpness and bokeh are excellent, despite slow, noisy and slightly picky AF.

Realise that the 200 f/2 is not your average carry-over-your-shoulder portrait lens, but when you make the effort and use it for specific people shots/portraits, the rewards are very unique.
