Is the 85mm 1.4g really that much better than the 1.4d
Nov 19, 2010

I am looking at getting a 85mm 1.4 either the g or d. Its going to be my first lens for full frame and i know the price difference is pretty significant. As i can get a used 85mm 1.4d for about $700. And the 1.4g is $1700 new, is it really worth the extra $1000. I heard the AF is much faster in the 1.4g, but is it really that much faster? If i can save $1000 and have not as fast of AF but the same bokeh, i think ill take that route instead. But if the bokeh is better on the 1.4g then i might just opt and go for that as i really want the best bokeh. Can someone who has had both tell me if its really worth spending all that money to get the 1.4g. Plus i know the 1.4g is sold out everywhere and i would probably have to wait just to get it. So at this point i think im going to go for the 1.4d, unless someone tells me otherwise that the 1.4g is really that much better.
