That was in my thinking when I bought the 105mm. I'd been thinking of getting the 85mm, but don't do enough portraits to need a lens just for that, besides which I also have the 70-200mm F2.8 zoom to do portraits with in a pinch.

My primary goal for the 105mm was macros. But if I now needed to do a portrait, odds are very high I'd grab the 105mm rather than the 70-200mm, if only to save size and weight.

If I shot lots of portraits, perhaps I'd have long ago also bought the 85mm when on sale at a good price.

Thank you, I think my occasional portrait means I’ll use this lens. I don’t have any 2.8 of better lenses so makes sense.
