I also found I liked the images better (this was on a D800) with the newer G versions than older versions (of course, I didn't test every possible combination, just the 85 f/1.8G and 50 f/1.8G and a couple of others). Could be the coatings, could be just what I like in IQ. Several other sites have noted quite different performance on the D800 than other bodies, though, and I've not seen the same discussion for the D610, so try them for yourself.

Bob, thanks for your reply! The 85 f/1.8G is relatively inexpensive, so I'll definitely give it a try. I'm sure I'd love the shallow DOF of the 85 f/1.4 G but I cannot afford it (now).
