85 f/1.4D grey or used? and the bokeh of 85 f/1.8 G
Apr 23, 2012

Now that the 85 f/1.8G has been around for awhile, can anyone comment on the real-world bokeh of this lens vs. the 1.4D when using both wide-open?

Also, I see that the 85 f/1.4D is available in the grey market through reputable retailers for about $1030, and used (but very gently used) for about $80 less. What would I be giving up by getting it used? Do grey maket lenses come with any warranty?
