  1. Also still planning on an 85mm NIKKOR.  The 1.8G got good reviews but I'm not against upgrading to the 1.4G if it is at all better???  After all, this is a long term purchase.

I bought the 85F1.8g when the rebates were on.  Had been working toward a 1.4 but couldn't quite justify it.

The 1.8 indeed seems as good as it's reputation (though I've not shot it much yet).   I STILL can't justify the 1.4, but somehow I still wonder if I would have liked it even more.

Just because of that itch that doesn't go away, I'd say just get the 1.4g, pair it with a Sigma 35F1.4, and be happy.
