Your observation about sharpness is no surprise.  Almost to a tee, slower lenses beat faster ones at all f-stops.  A lowly $140 50mm f/1.8 will beat a $400+ f/1.4.  The issue with the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 to me isn't sharpness, it's bokeh.  I found Samyang's/Opteka lenses at $300 a pop to be better in the defocused areas.  The 85mm f/1.8 Nikon is a great lens with terrific value.
