Re: Nikon 85mm 1.4G or 24-70mm 2.8G

Depends on what you want to shoot really but the 24-70 is definitely a lot more versatile.

I bought the 24-70 recently & did a Blog post  about what I think of it etc. including some of the better shots I've taken with it.

My main lens before it was the 50 1.8G so I'm definitely getting way more shots now than I could just with the 50mm despite any lesser optics at the wide end.

The wide end is basically it's only weak point, everything else about the 24-70 is pretty good.

Hope this helps.
