Re: Recommend Nikkor 28 f/1.8G or...

Based on your gear list and what you say you like to use and your selection criteria, I'd go for the 24mm f/1.8G or 28mm f/1.4E.

Why? You already have the 85 f/1.8G Nikkor, an excellent lens that may be marginally improved on with a 3rd-party lens. If VR is worth it to you, go for the Tamron.

The wides on your list could certainly use an update. The 24mm is the best across the frame of the f/1.8 G lenses and has given me outstanding results; the 28 is the first and one of the worst. The 28mm f/1.4 appears by all reports to be an exceptionally fine lens across the field, if 28 is your sweet spot.
