I believe I'll be getting the G version if it's as good as the 50mm/1.8G vs the 50mm/1.8D...

Still, I've been using the 85mm/1.8D for quite a while and choose it vs the f/1.4D at he time because of it's very good overall performances and also because it's smaller !

I guess you will find a lot of the D version second hand, for quite cheap Go for it, as other said, the time for your child pictures is "now" !!!

Some "real life" various examples of the 85mm/1.8D (on FX though):
