I am in the market for a new fixed focal length portrait lens and have narrowed my options down to two choices. I was curious if anyone had some opinions that would help me make the final decision. I am deciding between:

1) Telephoto AF DC Nikkor 105mm f/2.0D Lens

2) Telephoto AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D Autofocus Lens

I like the depth control feature of the 105mm, but love the price of the 85mm. I was curious how much of a benefit the depth control feature would be to get good bokeh and whether or not it is any better than what you would get stopping down to f/1.8-2.0. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated and of course if someone has a better recommendation outside these two that would be great as well.
