105 1.4 and D850 wide open
15

Just got this lens last week.  One thing that strikes me about it.  With no VR and razor thin DOF wide open, skill is once again required by the photographer.  I don't have a lot of experience with "portrait" lenses, but I feel that I now have one of the best if not the best portrait lens on the market in my bag.  The sharpness along with the rapid falloff of the background is amazing and very satisfying.  As for the lack of VR, I guess i'll just have to work around it.  I kind of like the challenge of it.  Reminds of when I began photography many years ago; skill played much more of a role in getting a nice shot.  With this lens, skill makes a comeback.
