135DC vs 85 1.4G

I do not own and I also haven't tested the 105mm DC lens. But the AF of the 135mm DC on the D3s is much slower then the AF of the 85 1.4G lens. I have test both lenses. The AF speed an AF accuracy has been one of the main points between my tests of the 135 DC and the 85 1.4G lens. So I have finally purchased the 85 1.4G.
