85 1.8 D and 80-200 AF-D 2 ring are 2 you might want to think about....

Trying to understamd an aspect of the models.  I've noted the D and in some cases G.  And there was a review that seemed to indicate that the 85 1.8G had superior performance to the D.  Is that just a generation thing, or is that a seperate model available at the same time?


The g's are newer modern lenses. Most of them have nano coating and perform at a higher level. The D's can be had at a great price but auto focus only works with a few camera models including the D800. So for budget reasons, you can go both ways.
