I own the 1.4 G 85, I bought the lens because at the time there was no 1.8g version ! I would not be comfortable posing an opinion on this forum based on a few test shots in a short space of time, I found I needed time to perform some rudimentary fine tuning tests and time generally to come to terms with adjusting my technique to get the best from the lens, at 1.4 DoF is narrow for regular subjects dropping down to minuscule when nearing minimum focus distance, once I  became comfortable I found that  my 85 is used for approx 95% of my images, coupled with my d800e and my 351.4g I feel I have the perfect setup for my needs.
