Hi

I'm having trouble deciding between these two. The Nikkor has a lower price, but the Sigma is F/1.4 and I really like to play with DoF in my portraits and other pictures. Is the stop difference that great or would I be happy with the Nikkor?

If the price weren't the issue - which one would you take?

Oh, I'm on a FX camera.

If it all possible, stretch for the Nikon 85 1.4 AFS. It is God's prime.

The 1.4G is not really an option. The 1.8G is 500€, the Sigma is about 800€. The 1.4G is over 1400€.
