Thanks for this write up - you have done a good job with it.

I like the Nikon 85mm f/1.8G

My copy is sharp wide open (although it suffers from CA at f/1.8, but it is easily fixed in LR) and a stellar performer from f/2.2 and up. And the great part is that it is only 350g

This review of it is quite good:

I am extremely pleased with mine and it make for a nice lightweight kit when combined with the 35mm f/2.  I just wish Nikon would make an FX 35mm f/1.8, but since the 28mm f/1.8 is around, I doubt they would do that.
