I find the 85 1.8G to be a superb all-rounder. It can be relied upon to give sharp results at any distance and aperture, leaving me to compose the shot any way I like without worrying about the limitations of the lens. I use it for indoor candids (without flash), portraits and some landscapes (70-200 f/4 is my preferred tele-landscape lens). Perhaps strangely I also like it for city/architecture. I like the slight compression of distance and the amount of subject separation it can achieve compared normal lens (35 or 50mm) in this use.
