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

A big no! The glass used in the 1.4D and G is as good as if not better than anything out there! And I think the Jury is still out on whether the D has better bokeh than the G even after 2 years.

In terms of build and optical quality the D will still be going when the AFS lens motors  have packed up.

You could buy a used 85 1.8 D and keep the 1.4D for portraits. I believe it has an 8 blade aperture V 7 round in the G.
