Samples comparing 85 1.4G and 85 1.8G
Nov 12, 2012

I am looking for comparison photos between these two lenses.  I have done searches on the web and couldn't find anybody.  Hoping someone here might know of a link or thread.

I want to get an 85 for portraits and am trying to decide if it is worth it to me to spend the extra for the 1.4G.

Here is what it will be used on and for:

  • I have a D700
  • I photograph young children, so AF speed is important
  • If I get the 1.8G I will just buy it outright.  If I decide on the 1.4G I will need to sell my 24-120 f/4 to help pay for it.
