    Seeing as nikon don't have a DX 105mm and sigma do, would you recommend i purchase the "lesser" sigma or get an 85mm 1.8 nikon lens for use with portraits?

    It's a film lens though and the focal length would be increased by 1.5x with a DSLR thus losing the necessary scale for a portrait lens
