    Let me know which ones, and alternatives without costing more than
    twice. Of course the value list is not as good as the top list.

    A couple obvious comments, for short tele portrait you left out the
    Nikon 85/1.4 and I'd call the 70-200's more like 'long sport tele's than
    a portrait lenses (especially on cropped digital) and the Canon is
    equivalent. For macro the MP-E is a specialty lens that won't do
    'normal' macro, Tamron has a 'value' 90/2.8 macro, for a top of the line
    'normal' macro lens I'd choose the Nikon 200/4.

    I have not used 85/1.4. But I have used 50/1.4 on half frame camera.
    The depth of field is too shallow. So it is very difficult to use for
    candid portrait. Maybe for still subjects it is OK with very careful
    focus.
    I just have another section listing the longer teles. The 70 end is
    within the conventional portrait range of about 85 and 135. When there
    is enough working distance, e.g., when outdoor, the 200 end is OK for
    portrait.
    According to MTF from Nikon and Canon, and PhotoZone's tests, the
    Nikon is sharper.

    It is the extreme.
    I have other lenses listed in the big lens comparison table.
