Re: Nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4 lens not so hot.

1.8G is sharper at f1.8 than 1.4G at f1.4. By f2 and onwards both the lenses are very sharp.

1.8G shows unnoticeable amount of pincushion distortion whereas 1.4G shows higher amount of barrel distortion (which is also very low in absolute terms).

1.8G has more or less same amount of vignetting as 1.4G at widest aperture. At f2 and f2.8, 1.8G has more vignetting than 1.4G at those apertures.
