Nikon Z 85mm 1.8 S vs 1.8G F-mount (optics)
1

I'm sure this has been discussed to death but was wondering what people thought about the new Z 85mm compared to the F-mount version?

I'm looking to get one, but I Know the older 85mm 1.8 is about half the price of a Z version right now (using the FTZ doesn't bother me that much so I'd be OK with the older one if the optics are similar).

Thoughts?  (I'm doing this as a way to not have to carry around my 70-200 all the time, and in particular, when I'm working in a static environment, like a studio).
