If you already have the 85 1.4D would you trade 'down' for the 1.8G + cash for other lenses?

Other than the less-than-a-stop difference, I think the only other thing you might lose is a little AF speed.  I don't think I'd say the 1.8G is sluggish (certainly seems decently fast to me), but have heard it isn't as snappy as the 1.4D on a pro body.

I think the sharpness is a big plus.  I love mine.    I can't remember if the rebates are done, but I'd grab one now if you can.
