Thanks for the input. From what i heard, I am confident that 1.8G is a great lens.

However, I really want to stick to f/1.4 version as bokeh is the only reason i want a 85mm lens. Otherwise i already have 70-200mm f/2.8 vrii, zeiss 100 f2 to cover similar focal lengths. Also, i find myself shooting at f/1.4 and f/1.6 a lot for the 1.4D version of the lens. yes, the dof is super shallow at that point, but 85mm requires distance from the subject for full body portraits thereby making up for the shallow dof.
