Choice of 85mm lenses?

Dear all,

I've been reading the enormous amount of information on the net about the rival Nikkor 85mm lenses, primarily the 85.1.4G, 85/1.4D and 85/1.8G. I have just purchased a D700 and am getting to know it. I have always had an f1.4 85mm (manual focus Zeiss on the Contaxes and Minolta 85mm on the Dynax 9) and would use it for portraits predominantly. Low light performance, AF accuracy (rather than speed) and bokeh are the key factors for me, I think.

Advice (assuming cost is no object, which it is, but...) please?

Thanks
