nikon 85mm 1,.8g closer focusing distances

Hi all,

I shoot my portraits with the 85mm 1.8g and there are times that I like to crop heads quite close (croppig half of the head). There are times I need to bring closer features of the face like an eye.

So quite often I find to have problems with the focusing distance of my 85mm 1.8g lens. If I want to focus then closer, do I have to start looking for macro lenses for this type of work? I ask becase this type of work or focusing distances are not considered (?) to be the typical use case of a macro lens.

Thanks

Alex
