Visibile differences between 85mm 1.4g and 1.8g?
1

I'm testing both the 85mm 1.4g and 1.8g on my D7000. I've only shot a few images so far and will do much more comparison to help me determine which I will keep. That will include testing for flare resistance.

But so far, the images look slightly different where the 1.4g is slightly more exposed / brighter...but otherwise, from 1.8 and up, the images look pretty much the same to me. I know everyone says that the 1.8 is amazing and probably delivers 95% of the performance at 1/3 of the price, but I wasn't fully expecting that to be true.

For those that have shot with both is this what you noticed as well?

Thanks!
