Re: Nikon 85mm 1.4D vs 1.4G

I had a D for a couple of years and have had the G now for nearly a year. The G is better all round.

I sold my D because I it wasn't very good in low light, the focussing hunting around noisily where the G just gets on and focusses. Bang on, every time.

The D was pin sharp in the middle - I've got razor sharp images wide open from it, but never particularly good at the edges, even stopped right down. The G is just as good in the middle but is way, way better around the edges.

The focussing is very slightly slower on the G although not by much, but much more reliable and accurate.
