Choosing 85mm f1.4G over 85mm f1.8g !!!!!!

Nuts, it's three times the price ?

Sharpness not much in it.
Seems from reading around the centre sharpness is only a smidgen better. DX corners are better but the 1.8 is surprisingly better on the FX corners.

But this is not the whole story, as Ming Thein said, the contrast, saturation, flare control and light transmission are vastly superior on the 1.4.
And that is what this FL is all about
So I am jumping expensive

Anyone have both who can comment ? (Or evaluated both)
