Nikon 85mm 1.4g or 1.8g?
10 months ago

Hey there good day

Recently I was really lucky and bought a pristine legendary 85mm 1.4g on craiglist for $800

huh, by no mean I am a professional (just a hobbyist), and I mainly shoot people, portrait and that kinda of stuff in my little town.

So now the questionis, should I sell the 1.4g for 1299+ and buy the cheaper 1.8g? I mean, I am afraid to use the 1.4g wide open anway thus I usually shoot at around f/1.8-f/2.8 with it...

Just so hard to decide... help!
