Re: 85mm f1.8G vs 1.8D - focus speed?

not to change topics but how much do you like the G lens in comparison to the D. And did you ever try the 1.4G?

I have the 1.8D now and like it but thinking to change.

thanks

Neither was a speed demon, and I sold the D when I bought the G so I never directly compared the two. But yes, my impression was that the old lens was a bit faster auto-focusing. But the new lens is sharper, and honestly, for what I use it for (portraits), it's never bothered me in the least.
