Would anyone say a particular lens is best for portraits?

Be careful if you use a D3100 as mentioned near the beginning of th thread. There are no mechanical linkages in the body, so using an older lens will require stop down metering and possibly using the lens at minimum aperture. There is a chart on the Nikon site that shows compatibity between lenses and bodies.

I've been checking out different 3rd party 70-200 f2.8 zooms for my Nikon D3100 - Tamron & Sigma - as a lens I'd probably keep forever, would people be of the opinion it's a better idea to go for the latest greatest Nikon version, or are these pretty comparable? Unfortunately no shops near me to try out, so I am trying to get as many opinions as possible. I don't mind paying for extreme quality, if thats what you are getting, as I'm hoping to get more seriosly involved in photography.

I would like to get a fisheye sometime, or an ultra-wide, does anyone know how the quality of above mentioned lenses(70-200) compares or which is the better of the cheaper options?

Er, a 70-200 is nowhere near being an ultra-wide or a fisheye - or are you wondering if you can save some dosh on a telezoom to put towards a wide?

Yes basically, but not at the expense of bot getting a decent 70-200, The Tamron and Sigma do look fairly competitive, wondered how they faired in real world useage, if anyone first hand experience of different versions(tele-zooms).
