Nikon have released a new portrait lens.  The 135 DC with its selective focus has been well liked and we now have the 105 f/1.4 which will be a nice treat for the minimalistic depth of field fanatics out there (and yes I am one myself).

Nikkor 105mm f.1.4

I have always thought the 135mm a little to long, but then I tend to use my 70-200 mm f/2.8 Nikkor zoom.  Nikkor have now brought out the 105 DC but I already have the 105 mm micro so did not want to duplicate my focal lengths.

I have always had a hankering the the 85mm f/1.4 but it never seems to get good reviews so have been waiting for it to be replaced.  I have also been saving for a Leica 90mm f/2 for my Leica M to use for portraits, and at the moment I am thinking of moving totally to Leica for the majority of my work and just keeping the Nikon and long glass for wildlife.
