Nice portraits, just shows it is the photographer that is the most important tool and not the newest dslr!



Thanks Jeff, The 85 1.4D helps, I like shallow DOF photography very much, but I have been surprised by how often the extra 3/4 stop has saved the shot, and the bokeh is everything I expected and then some.

For those considering the 85G don't rule this lens out, for a few hundred dollars more, you sacrifice a fraction of sharpness, and get a boatload of creativity. It is already the sharpest lens I have owned, including the Nikon 50mm and the 80-200 2.8 at 80. As Thom says this is not a lens that can be tested on flat charts due to a curved Dof  at wide settings.
