I recently got a D70,and 2 lenses,1 is a Sigma 70-300mmD Super Macro,1:4-5.6 DG,and the other is a (came with the camera) Nikkor AF 28-100mm 1:3.5-5.6 G,what would be a good Portrait lens for this camera,I really dont think either of these would cepting maybe the Nikkor?

Here's a good reference site for what all the letters mean (at least on the Nikkor lenses) Nikkor Lens Reference
I shoot a D70 and can honestly say that to get the best out of this body, you really need to hang good glass in front of the sensor. I've shot with all of the following with noted results:
These are all Nikkor lenses:
50mm f/1.8D - not bad for a $99 prime, limited compression capability
18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AFS - the 'kit' lens. It's OK but I found it soft where I needed it most between 50 & 70mm
24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AFS - better than the kit lens between 50-70mm plus the extra 15mm gives better compression
80-200mm f/2.8D ED AFS - first 'pro' glass. Super lens, but it's a tank
70-200mm f/2.8G VR ED AFS - traded up from the 80-200mm. Finest glass I own
28-70mm f/2.8D ED AFS - another superb lens I use 60% of the time. Paired with the 70-200mm, it's really all I need.
You can check my portfolio for samples of all these shot with the D70...
I anxiously await my D200 to be released!
