The Nikon 85mm f/1,8G is a good lens for portraits.
However, the halo (or axial croma) is really strong, creating magenta fringe in high contrast area. I get also the green fringe in artificial light in contrast bokeh-area, and this can't be corrected easily with CS6 or NX2. Therefor I don't like to use it outdoors. I don't see you mentioning anything about this feature in your review. Strange (unless there is something wrong with the particular lens that I have), since this is more difficult problem than vignetting.
AF is also rather slow, not for capturing fast-moving children.

I noticed this weaknes in the shop, therefor had no unpleasent surprises after unboxing it home.
