Sigma 105mm f/2.8-EX-DG VS Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF

Hi all,

For portrait photography, which one should I go for???

I can't afford Nikon 85mm f/1.4D and Nikon 105mm f/1.8D

Have to choose from one of the 2 mentioned in the subject line.

Any other alternate suggestion is most welcomed.

Thanks,
Bishnu Bhatta

Of the two for portraits I'd go for the Nikkor 85mm f1.8.

Although I use my Sigma 105mm for all my portraits I think I too would recommend the Nikkor - unless you wanted to do macros as well in which case the Sigma!

For reassurance only! Great choice, the Sigma 28-105 is a nice sharp lens!
