it used to mean ED glass
but the 85 1.4g is gold ring but no ED

and all the shitty kit lenses have ED and no gold ring

the gold ring is a signal to buyers
thats all

If anything it means Nano coated these days. The 35/1.4G also has no ED glass but does have the gold ring. It has Nano coated elements like the 85/1.4G though.
