Which would you choose? 85mm 1.4g or 135mm f2 DC?

It would be a coin toss for me. I love both lenses, although I own the 85mm f1.4AFD, not the G, however I do not think there is an enormous difference, optically, between the D and G. Here are a few samples of the 85mm on a D700:
and the 135mm on a D700:
Depends entirely on what you intend to shoot. I have managed a few macro-looking shots with the 85mm, but would never both trying that with the 135mm. The 135mm does give me a lot more space between myself and my subject. It's fantastic for portraits, and I might be able to swing some landscape shots with it. I really love both lenses.
