The 85 1.8G is a close to perfect lens that absolutely tested off the charts on Photozone. (The Sigma 85 1.4 that others are crowing about tested worse than both the f1.4 and f1.8G Nikkors).

Crowing about? The Sigma actually tested as having higher central sharpness at equivalent apertures   in comparison with the 85 1.8 G... it's softer in the corners... I have never really noticed it .

My 85 1.8 G has never come close to producing the quality of the bokeh that I got with the Sigma. While this shot is misfocused, the quality of the blur speaks for itself... I prefer the colours I got with the Sigma as well
