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

Yes, you are correct in that the 85 f1.4D does not have dust and weather sealing just remembered that after I posted and forgot to go back to change what i wrote. 

The 85 f1.4D is the only lens I have ever owned that came with a metal hood, unfortunately its a nuisance to carry around bc its not a reversable bayonet type hood so its only used in the studio, a real shame. I find the hood very handy for backlit portraits and shooting into the sun to reduce flare/ghosting and to improve contrast, not to mention to protect the front element from accidental damage.  I have searched for a non nikon hood but came up empty handed.
