Several reviews show the 85 1.8G sharper than the 85 1.4 and even the 105 f2.8 macro

They are all sharp enough that it's not relevent. More important considerations would be the way they handle skin tone and bokeh. That's where the f1.4G wins, though on the budget mentioned I suggest the Sigma 85mm f1.4 HSM.
