Re: Nikon 85mm 1.4G or 1.8G for the D800?

I strongly suggest you try both. You need to be really cautious with these comments that suggest the 1.8 is "known to be just as good" because there are relatively few photographers that have used both. If you haven't used a lens you can't have an opinion about it.

I have the 1.4G. It's amazing. I could go on and on about it. But I haven't tried the 1.8. I got the 1.4G because it was only $1700 and I came from Canon where the 85 is $2100, so seemed like a bargain to me
