The G model is fine tuned for digital, but the 85/1.4D paints with a vintage brush that delights my Old School sensibilities.

HI Frank!

Nice portrait (and I get what you are saying)!

At some point how sharp a lens is, begins to take a back seat to some of its other characteristics.

I have the 85 1.4 AF-D , and while I don't use it as much as I used to, and have toyed with selling it and "upgrading" to the AF-S, I haven't, partly for the reasons you allude to.

(My other lens that renders closest to the 85 1.4 AF-D is another AF-D lens, the 28 1.4.)

I note that you've ventured into the micro 4/3 world...almost a complete unknown to me!

Best Regards,

RB
