Re: Now - some no - with a lot of yes!

From the Nikon lens perspective you get 5 axis VR with Nikon lenses that do not have inbuilt VR - with a D6 or D7 

From the Canon perspective as yet they have no bodies with IBIS - so VR in an 85mm f1.4 makes sense for Canon users.

Back to Nikon, with an 85mm f1.8 S due early next year, I do not foresee the specification you are looking for in an F mount in the near future - and if ML continues to take increasing market share - probably never.

You can have almost the specification you mention right now from Nikon - with a Z6 or 7 applying VR to the Nikon 105 mm f1.4 for the latest optics; or the exact specification with slightly older optics with a Z and the Nikon 85mm f1.5 G,

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than the equipment being used.
