Re: Perturbed by the Rudeness and Hostility on these Forums


The 1.8 indeed seems as good as it's reputation (though I've not shot it much yet).   I STILL can't justify the 1.4, but somehow I still wonder if I would have liked it even more.

Just because of that itch that doesn't go away, I'd say just get the 1.4g, pair it with a Sigma 35F1.4, and be happy.

It's because of comments like this that mirrored my comments and thoughts one time that I learned long ago to just save and buy what *I* felt was the best. The reason is that you'll always be second guessing and saying "I wonder..."

Sometimes I'm happy with the lowest model but there are times I just go for it all and get what I perceived as the best at the time. Though the 85 f/1.8G sounded awesome, I wanted something a little different than a direct replacement to my 85 f/1.8AF, so I got the f/1.4G. Was it worth it? Sure, I don't have any "wanting" of anything the 85 f/1.8G might have other than $1000 I would have saved.
