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

I love the way the 1.4d draws a photo and of course, the bokeh.  There's no way I'd go for the 1.8g. I've read that the Sigma 85 f/1.4 is as good as, maybe better than, the Nikon 1.4d for bokeh. That is probably the only lens that I'd consider, if something happened to my 1.4d.

But, in the end, it's your photos we're talking about here.  If you'd be happy with the 1.8g, that's all that matters.
