Re: Sigma 85mm f1.4 hsm or Nikon 85mm f1.8 g

What other lens do you have in this range of focal length ? I already have the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII which is very sharp at f/2.8, so I opted for f/1.4 rather than f/1.8 in order to have a more significant difference in light gathering and DOF.

I tried both Nikon f/1.8 and Sigma f/1.4 at the store "just in case" but bought the Sigma f/1.4.

I didn't want to buy the Nikon f/1.4 because practically all reviews of the Sigma say it is as good as the Nikon, and the saved money was used to buy the Nikon 28mm f/1.8, which I like also very much (more than expected in fact).

Regarding quality control, I've had more trouble with Nikon QC than Sigma QC over the last 7 years (more than 10 lenses bought, Nikon best and prosumer lenses while only Sigma EX).
