Re: How different really

Hi Raul,

I don't have an answer for that. If you are in a place where you can rent both maybe you can get a better feeling.

Here in Thailand I don't know of such place so that made my decision a bit more difficult.

I am very happy with this lens at it suits my needs in terms of build quality and the lovely thin DOF that I was craving for but of course if budget were a concern I could have gone with one of the excellent lenses you mention.

from the 85mm F1.8D or F1.8DG?

I doubt that the amount it costs is justified.
